Beware of the text thieves!
I got quite a surprise when I found out that my original post Planet of the naked apes is copied word for word and presented as original material without any attribution to me at http://green.bligblog.com/.
As I hope you have noticed, my entire blog is licensed under an Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works Creative Commons license, which means that the text may be reproduced freely for noncommercial purposes if – and only if – it is clearly and unequivocally attributed to me. However, the “Green” blog mentions neither my name nor the name of my blog. Neither does it link to the original post or to my blog at all. To make matters even worse, the blog uses some sort of ad system called Bliggo, which displays advertising on the blog. This seems to be a step away from a strictly noncommercial blog, and might in itself violate the terms of the CC license.
The most annoying thing of all is that there is no way to contact the people behind the blog. Comments on the site are closed, and there is no e-mail address or any other contact information on the blog at all. I have gone one step further, and tried to find the people responsible for the bligblog.com domain, with the same result. Comments closed, no contact information. If any of my readers know how I can get in contact with these scoundrels, or at least find out who they are, please leave a reply here, or contact me by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
