Today I got an incoming link from a new website, which I will decline to name at this time. So as I always do, I clicked the new link to check out what this new site was all about. And it’s everything that I’ve written. Word for word, photo for photo, video for video. It’s my site, with a different title and template. No contact info, so I can’t e mail this person who seems to be blatantly stealing and reposting my work on a daily basis. I don’t know what this is, but I want it to stop.
Friends in the blogosphere, fellow bloggers — has anything like this happened to you? Should I be as pissed off about this as I am right now? How can I make this desist immediately? Please, holla at your girl and tell me how to handle this situation.
** I was contacted by the umbrella Website’s creative director, who explained that they were trying to develop a new website and were reposting RSS feeds that they liked in the interim. Apparently they meant to e mail and let me know, but never got around to it before I freaked out. I’m going to be posting an Afrobella FAQ soon, to clarify my feelings about being reprinted elsewhere. I just want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your love, support, and advice! I wouldn’t have even known how to contact these people without your suggestions.
