Unbelievable Plagiarism–Or Should I be Flattered?

I did a quick search of copyscape and found that someone had stolen the bulk of my services description at my business website, http://predictiveconsulting.com. Why in the world would anyone so blatantly copy a services description, of all things? To be successful, any business must be all about differentiation, lest they be a Me-Too that cannot do anything but compete on lower price. Ignoring the legal and moral issues of plagiarism, stealing someone’s services description is just plain stupid business practice.

I’m calling my lawyer.

    Curtis — Not only should you contact your lawyer, you should contact the ISP of the guy who stole it. Yanik Silver did a piece on this a couple of months back outlining all the steps you can take.

    Not only is it illegal, it’s incredibly stupid… Google looks for duplicate content, and he’s going to virtually disappear from their searches, I believe.

    By the way, how did you find out?
