Website jocking

I'm a bit PO about this website jocking my reviews, mostly South Indian films. This guy by name of Karan

http://bollywood.mediadir.in/

I did a search and came up with most of my reviews.

I am flattered that he liked what I wrote...but a link back to my blog would be much appreciated.
Look, I typed in Surya and my reviews are taken, word for word

Here's screen caps

Aw, that sucks! :(

I have a couple suggestions, and will e-mail you, Nicki. Just so the 'thieves' don't know our strategy ;)

Cheers.

God, that's shitty...and scary! How did you find that? I'm almost terrified to see if that's happening to me...

That's one of the pitfalls of the internet. Once you put something up, even if it's watermarked or has your site tags all over it, you have very little, if any, control over where/how it's used.

Maybe now that you've exposed that person, he/she will stop stealing your reviews, or at least acknowledge where he/she got them. Usually, if you put people on blast, they stop.

theBollywoodFan - Thanks so much for the e-mail. I really appreciate it.

BB - I know, I am really irritated. I found out by someone e-mailing me about it.

lapetitediva - I agree with you though. Anything on the Internet can be shared. Since I posted about this, hoping he'll know.

This is horrible. The effort you put on your reviews are stolen !! The person is having mediocre mindset, totally.

Ugh. Just last week I caught another site doing that for at least five of us Bolly bloggers. BOOOOO! Let me know if your strategy works - I could use a new one!

Nicki said...

Darshit - thanks. I know. Urgh!

Beth - OMG! What is up?? If I find anything that works, I'll let you know.

Thats terrible! It takes such a long time to write these posts and make the screencaps and someone just walks in and copies it!!! I hope your strategies work...

Nicki said...
