I ran across THIS POST where I found a blogger alarmed that content was being lifted and re-distributed on another site.
I checked out the offending site, and reported back to the blogger by leaving the following comment:
Hey there!I'll have to check back later and see if blogster actually approved and published my comment.
Upon inspecting the site, it looks like somewhere along the line you may have been using/displaying a CC badge or maybe you indicated on some website or other that you were using one of those "creative commons" licenses... they have your content listed as "You are free:
* to Share — to copy, distribute and transmit the work"
So my friend, I think you need to go to creative commons, pick out one of their do not copy type of widgets/badges, install it on your site, and THEN complain that your content is being illegally scraped.
I'm going to post about this on my blog, so please come over after you have resolved the situation and let me know what happens!
And, hopefully the whole thing gets resolved in good measure...
