Almost everyday, several blog sites fall victim to article snatchers. The worst type of stealing blog content is by means of “scraping“, a technique employed by lazy bloggers so they could have articles served on theirs automagically. Although I think this is harder to block, we can use a plugin that could stop those “copypasters” from getting our articles. I have used this in the past, but removed it as most of my articles are how-tos and needs to be copy-pasted.
WP-CopyProtect is a WordPress plugin designed and created by Chetangole, and is a very effective means to combat those copy-paste dudes out there. The wordpress repository maintains a version of the plugin, just head to the Plugins section and type “WP-CopyProtect” in the search box. Alternatively, you can download the author-maintained version at his site, the link is provided below.
