Copyright Troll Legal Notice

Related to this question, but beyond Flickr: where it's just random product images, can I or can't I re-host their image with proper credit and a link? [more inside]

Best strategies for defeating sploggers who are lifting my content.

I've had a couple smaller splogs that gave up after a period of time. However, one splog has persisted and, through volume, is showing up higher in searches than my original posts. What can I do? [more inside]
