Zurza struck again. No sooner had I uploaded my weekly post on August 16 to my Performancing Blog, complete with a copyright notice and a preface rant against Zurza than my post was stolen and posted to Zurza's blog. Have a good laugh and see the whole thing http://zurza.com/write-better-faster-part-3-by-joan-reeves%c2%a92008/. (I refuse to put a hot link to that spam blog.)
I had to laugh. Guess whoever operates the Zurza site is using completely automated software. They don't even realize they're publicizing their own theft.
Wonder what I'll have to say about Zurza in my next Performancing post, if I keep that blog? Since the powers that be at Performancing haven't deigned to respond to my notice to them about the situation (neither have any of the other blog directories), I may abandon that blog. Apparently, they don't care that the posts there are being stolen. Now that I'm on Zurza's hit list, I'm sure it will happen every week. It's infuriating.
Same with Zurza's website host theplanet.com. No response to my "DMCA letter" notifying them of Zurza's copyright infringement.
I've sent "DMCA letters" to the Search engines also. Will let you know what happens.
Does anyone care?
I care. Why should I spend time and energy composing a great blog post only to have some moron steal it and post it on his/her own blog?
