So right, there's a site out there, bitacle.org, which is reproducing people's blogs and feeds, etc. Lit Soup is one of them that's being done that way. Now, as far as I understand, by default, everything I write on this blog is copyrighted to me, although I do allow it to be publicly viewed on the Internet. But what this insidious other site is doing, is reposting my blog (originally without giving me credit nor copyright) and then slapping text ads from Google AdSense on top of it. If someone clicks on one of their ads, they get a percentage of what that company paid Google to run the ad in the first place. Essentially, they're making money from my words.
To say that I'm annoyed is putting it mildly, although as it's 3:45am in the morning, I am not going to overreact at the second. But when I am in a more rational mood later today, I shall be deciding what to do about this. I am not pleased.
