I’d like your advice on what to do when you see your content republished without any attribution. This is the downside of greater influence – more people are likely to take ideas and republish them as their own. I consider this to be intellectual theft. Is that too extreme?
I’ve stumbled across republished content by accident – not necessarily in places with great reach, but annoying nonetheless. And it’s not something as general as "customer-centric marketing" – it’s more along the lines of specific concepts.
So what would you do? Email the author? Leave a comment? Call it out on your own blog with trackback? Do nothing? Something else?
Your advice appreciated (in comments).
