DVINFO.NET content being copied

the successes of this site were bound to catch up with it sooner or later, lol... some jerk has copied the page content off of dvinfo.net, and placed it on his website... i believe that this practice is known as "scraping", and i've been waiting for it to happen to my sites.

search engines use keywords to index content, so that they have relevant links to return to people who are doing searches... search engine optimization demands that you structure your site with relevant keywords, so that it'll be easily and correctly found by the search engines... but the pond scum of the internet just copy text where ever they can, instead of creating original content... check the bottom of the linked page to see the dvinfo.net content, the entire page is a classic example of "keyword stuffing".

our scraper site appears to be a russian domain that is hosted in russia, per the info i listed below... probably not much that we can do there, but the url could be reported to google, yahoo, msn, etc., so that it can be banned from their search results.

To Dan and Pete, thanks for the heads-up. This sort of thing happens on occasion and I guess it's part of the price we pay for being one of the top destinations in the world for digital video discussion. I love the "copyright" notice at the bottom of that page! Much appreciated,

Results!

So I sent an email to that guy, and he removed our material before I could return from lunch.

Thanks again to Dan for finding this and to Pete for the email.

Chris, I was going to suggest you send me a plane ticket and a length of rebar and I'd go fix the problem in person, but then I realized I'd never make it out of the airport hotel with the stories I hear about Russian women.... :)

In my best female Russian accent: "Say there, is that a length of rebar, or are you happy to see me?"

They are beautiful women. No wonder they kept that iron curtain up for so long.

you guys are too funny, lol!

i'm glad to hear that he pulled his scraper content off so fast... google is cracking down on scrapers big time, he's probably afraid that he'll lose the income off of his sites by being banned from the search engines.
