copyscape.com is a good site for locating where your content has been stolen is appearing online without your authorization.

matters.com
friendseat.com

Those are two BS content ripper sites that operate much like Google. Stealing people's content and displaying it on their own pages upside other content.  Both have been wholesale stealing and displaying pages from my website.   See mostly snippets of our site on their site now under coupons on each place's listing.

Surely, I must be getting smacked around from this and who knows how many other sh!t theft sites.

What am I to do?

Well let's see, I'll start by telling these sites to exclude our URL from their content pages.

When they don't comply?   Unsure.

But, bring to task the issue of Google doing the same damn thing with everyone's content.   I'd wager hard earned money on these content thieves getting the data they are displaying right from the biggest content thief directly, Google Search.  Can't find a search spider or anything to identify them requesting the documents.  Their snippets if you will look eerily similar in length to Google's own search result listings.

Is all irony lost on the fact that Sergey Brin personally donated $500,000 of his own money to Creative Commons?  How many other copy lacking copyright erosion investments have the lefties at Google made?

Clearly, Google can't stand copyrights or protecting rightful owners of content- of any sort.

Google can't write software now on top of the mountain of other failures.

Perhaps someone should file a lawsuit against Google, but in addition against those holding patents on technology Google is using for search in THEIR PERSONAL CAPACITY.  Maybe that would snap Google's neck and dictate some attention?
