Pro Golf News is STEALING CONTENT

The site at pro golf news dot net (URL not included intentionally) is stealing content from Hooked On Golf Blog and many other golf blogs and sites like The Golf Channel’s. Much of this content is not linked or credited to the original authors AND they have google ads on the site. They’re making money by illegally posting OUR blog posts.

Though this site and many golf blogs have RSS feeds, these feeds are intended for the personal use of individuals on their personal home computer. These RSS feeds are NOT for other sites or companies to use for monetary gain.

I’ve sent them a C&D email and reported them to google for adsense violations.

    I’m never sure what to make of services like progolf.net — I mean they direct people back to your site, but they are also stealing the top two graphs of your work without credit and plopping it on their site. Several sites do this to me — and I can’t really figure out what — if anything — to do about it.
