I don’t take kindly to people who steal from me. The web site Great Golf and Spa (URL intentionally omitted) is doing just that.
They’re posting my content, with my name on it, without permission. So far I count 20 articles of mine, dating back to 2009 that they’re ripping off.
Ripping off others too. Are you on this list?
I’m not the only one they’re ripping off. Here’s a list of others below. I’ve emailed a few of the people on this list who I happen to know. Contact me if you are on this list and we’ll discuss how to bring this site down.
David Leadbetter Golf Academy
Innkeeper, Inn & Spa At Cedar Falls
Dr. Bob Winters
Myrna Katz Frommer

How to take bring it down? File a DMCA complaint
The DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) is in place to protect content. Since this site is hosted by Hostgator, I have to file complaint with them via fax or snail mail (yeah very efficient). Details on exactly what to file and where with Hostgator are here: http://www.hostgator.com/copyright.shtml
I’ll be filing, and any others who are being violated should do so as well.
