Today, I had an unpleasant surprise this morning on the train to work. I found out that two websites actually stole my content! This was such a let down since the amount of content that was stolen from me is more than just one article. It’s almost all my articles from December. While I was working on contacting other sites and blogs that got content stolen, a good blogging friend of mine Drakulus wrote this article. And it’s actually a great lesson to learn.

    1. Well… WordPress sent me an email and pretty much refused to help us so… what happens next is anyone’s guess. I’m planning on self hosting myself and moving away from WP because I no longer trust them to keep my content safe.

      1. I take it, it’s like what you get from YouTube, a big wordy answer that resolves nothing. Shame. I thought WordPress would do something considering that a lot of bloggers pay WP for their blogs.

      2. Exactly! I pay WordPress for mine and I expect some form of protection from them. Someone shouldn’t be able to steal from us and make a profit. WordPress should step in and do something about it. It makes them look bad and I can’t recommend a platform to future bloggers that I can’t trust anymore.

      3. Agreed. If you pay for something like WP then you expect some sort of protection by them. Or at the very least put you in touch with people that can help.

        YouTube also has no excuse but at least you don’t have to pay there. Unless you have YouTube Red but that has a few bonuses and isn’t essential for success.
