I selected this article from Curatti written by Shelly Kramer because it explains how to find out whether your brand's content has been hijacked.


Protect your valuable blog posts from piracy.


How to Stop Content Theft


As a business it's important to know whether your hard work is being used in an unethical manner. I agree that it's important to find out whether your content is being used in order to preserve your brand reputation.


Kramer shows how to gather the right information on your blog posts in order to protect them.


Here's what caught my attention:


  • The Internet makes it easy to steal content in an age of curation. It's okay to do if you get permission and leave an attribution.


  • In order to find out whether your articles are being used by someone else you can use some handy tools. Google Alerts and Copyscape are two good ones to start with.


  • You can prevent content theft if you are using WordPress with various plugins like Copyright Notice and Yoast SEO. Alternatively you can hire a professional to set up safety measures for you.
