online piracy on wordpress.org ?

Imagine your surprise when searching google keywords and find that your post has been pirated under a different Blog framework.

This is exactly what happened recently.

Posted the real event in 2007 on articlesbase :   http://www.articlesbase.com/exotic-locations-articles/mandiana-niani-mali-border-156889.html

Yet I found my article posted by tuaregontherun :   http://tuaregontherun.com/mandiana-customs-scam-night-in-the-savanna-barrages-de-selingui-mali in August 2010.

The extent of copyright  infringement this represents, and the implications to wordpress.org , (hosting  the blog) our lawyers will have to establish.

On another case, again related to ‘turageontherun’ the google search showed another article published by me, but detailed search could not establish the actual article itself.

I feel that a lesson should be drawn from such incident to deter others from copy-paste tactics to use copyright materials on the web.
