Splashpress Media Launches Copyright Service

Posted on Jan 19, 2009

Splashpress Media is pleased to announce that it has partnered up with Jonathan Bailey of Plagiarism Today to offer clients specific services in relation to copyright infringements. Jonathan has been helping the community at Performancing for some time via the legal forum, where he would answer the varying legal questions of users. Have no fear- this free service will continue at Performancing– the new copyright service is only for those needing that extra bit of personalized legal help. Jonathan also writes
about this very topic (as well as other legal issues) in his featured posts at the Blog Herald.

J. Angelo Racoma announced the service over at Performancing:

What happens when you’ve finished writing a blog post and hit the publish button? Well, for one, your blogging software will publish your article for all the world to see. But there’s something that’s not as obvious. The moment you hit publish, you now own the copyright to that particular post, unless you explicitly state otherwise.

Most bloggers are unaware of this. Or most of us simply don’t care. Until some other site automatically republishes our post in full, that is. It’s called scraping, one of the ugly cousins of splogging. Worse, they probably have AdSense, text links and other affiliate links slapped on their sites. Where’s the link back to your blog, you ask? In all likelihood, it’s not there. Or if there’s a link, it probably just adds to the insult.

You become a victim of copyright infringement.

The bad thing here is that search engines penalize for duplicate content. And to their eyes, it doesn’t matter who does own the copyright, and who does publish first. If it’s a dupe, both sites will be hit.

Tracking down which sites duplicate your content does take time, energy and a lot of patience. Acting on these takes even more time, energy and patience. Most scrapers won’t even bother responding to your emails. Some hosting providers do, but sometimes not without a little push.

And to help our fellow writers combat this scourge of the blogosphere, we’re launching our very own Copyright Management service through Performancing Services.

Content scraping is one of the biggest headaches a blogger faces. Once you hit that publish button, your articles are prone to automatic copying and republishing by not-so-trustworthy websites who do not link back. Some of these scrapers even earn from your hard work by slapping on some advertisements, text links or affiliate links on their own sites, as if it were their own.

What exactly happens when you avail these services?

First, our copyright experts will track down websites, blogs, forums and other online services that copy your content in full or in partial without proper attribution. We will then send you a report of these, with a suggested course of action.

If you wish not to act on these copyright violations yourself, we will initiate takedown notices with the erring publishers and their hosting providers. The package includes action on three (3) sites, but we can act on an unlimited number of violators.

Head over to Performancing Services if you think someone’s copying your work and passing it off as their own.

Over at Performancing Services, the service is offered as part of the Blog Mananagement Services:

Content scraping is one of the biggest headaches a blogger faces. Once you hit that publish button, your articles are prone to automatic copying and republishing by not-so-trustworthy websites who do not link back. Some of these scrapers even earn from your hard work by slapping on some advertisements, text links or affiliate links on their own sites, as if it were their own.

The Performancing Copyright Management Service does the hard work for you. Our copyright experts will track down websites, blogs, forums and other sites that infringe on your rights as a publisher. We will then give you a comprehensive report with suggested courses of action. If you choose to, we can also act on these violations on your behalf, by initiating take down notices and making sure your original content stays where it should–on your blog! Price includes initial consultation, tracking, initial report and appropriate action on three (3) infringing sites.

The service is also offered at Splashpress Media‘s other blog service website: bLogics – tailored for those bloggers that need legal help, but to a lesser degree than is offered at Performancing Services:

Don’t be a victim to scrapers republishing and earning from your original content!

Most bloggers are unaware of their rights as publishers. The moment you publish a blog post, it is considered copyright by you as the original author, unless you explicitly state otherwise. However, the moment you publish an article, it is also prone to copying and reposting elsewhere. You become a victim of copyright infringement.

You have rights!

Our copyright management services does two things:

Our copyright expert will track down websites, blogs, forums and other online services that copy your content in full or in partial without proper attribution. We will then send you a report of these, with a suggested course of action;

If you wish not to act on these copyright violations yourself, we can initiate takedown notices with the erring publishers and their hosting providers. You will only be charged for successful takedown requests.

Initiating DMCA takedown notices does take time, effort and a lot of patience. So why not let us take care of these for you, so you can avoid these hassles and focus on what you do best?

We look forward to working with Jonathan over the coming months in helping bloggers succeed in this increasingly labyrinthine and frustrating area. Also, a heads up that we are also planning an additional resource at Splog Spot where Jonathan will be calling out those sploggers and advising users how to take them down!
