The Art of Combatting Plagiarism
I came home late last night, I didn’t know what’s happening really I spent the time watching my shows then hit the sack for lack of a better word. I woke up this morning and found out that a blog (also for lack of a better word because in my opinion it’s not one) was going around copy-pasting content from other well-known blogs [not sure if I was hit by the copy/paste bug in that dark place] and placing it as their own.

When are you guys going to learn that copy-pasting is the work of the devil!? When?! I swear I am tired of telling everyone out there that PLAGIARISM IS BAD! I just wanna have a big stick like the one Fred Flintstone has and go around wacking people with it, Marzouq will definitely help with that :P he likes smashing things don’t you dude?! :P
Anyways, some small things one can do to protect their content if you want to avoid such problem is install “Plugins” on your “WordPress” blog that will allow you to stop others from copying your content:
So to put it bluntly, this plugin disables people from right clicking and saving your picture and protects only that.
- WordPress Protection [Security for your WordPress Site]: However gives you a full package: “WordPress Protection Plugin provides complete security for your wordpress website, so that the plagiarists could not copy the content and steal data or images from your wordpress site Pages. By using the WordPress Protection Plugin (Basic), you can only disable the text-selection and block the use of right click on your website.“
Now this is the option I would suggest many of you to go with, I actually might install it myself, this disables every kind of stealing, content as well as images! And it’s rated highly! So if you’re on WordPress hurry up and grab it and protect yourself!
Plagiarists be warned, we’re coming after you!
Thanks to 7ajidude for raising this issue.
P.S. The blog has been removed and unfortunately I could not see it for myself to see if anything from my content was stolen there. But oh well, at least it’s gone! That miserable sucker!
