Yesterday I found a blog in blogger that has copied my blog 100%, all posts. As this probably is the works of some evil computer program with the soul purpose to lure my readers to their site and install viruses and other crap, I will not link the blog here as I don´t want anyone clicking the link.. But the thing that I found a copy of my blog is not important (that´s my problem, not yours)...
But what was good, is that again I remembered how important it is to watermark your images to protect them from misuse. It does not need to be a huge print over the image, but a logo at some corner. Maybe even add your blog address to it with a small print. It will not prevent copying and doing a watermark makes the posting a bit more slower as you have to Photoshop all images one by one, but it is worth the trouble.. Like in this case this watermark is the only proof that I have that this other blog is the copy and mine is the original.
Matter of Style does the picture watermark beautifully. See her blog for examples.
I have reported the copyblog to Google. Hopefully they will shut it down soon.
