10 Powerful Tips to Leverage Content Theft

Quote:
Content theft has been a real pain in the butt for webmasters/bloggers for as long as the web has existed.

4. Disable right mouse click on your images. This will make stealing your images difficult. There are many scripts available out there, like this one to disable right mouse click on an image. There is also a wordpress plugin for this.
That Embed image thing also pops up when selecting text for quoting purposes (like me quoting the above).

Other than that, there's some good ideas in this article.

Embed Anything looks interesting. But I'm not sure it would stop the script scrapers. That's the problem I see - not someone copying interesting information to share in a forum post.

Content scraping is an ongoing and difficult problem to solve. To block them effectively, you need the right tools. It is amazing how many rogue crawlers, bots, and scrapers exist on the internet.

Why can't you just use Copyscape to find your duplicate article and threaten to sue the person who stole your copyrighted material?

It is easier, less time consuming, and cheaper to stop the theft before it happens. Otherwise, you are assuming that one can check Copyscape on a regular basis for all of their content, the thief can be located, that they are located where a suit can reasonably be filed, that it is economical to file a suit, that their web host will be responsive to a DMCA take-down request; etc.

when we embed some thing into our website , it automatically relates to the owner's content, then i think there is no issue of copy right.
