Several hours ago I found out about a fellow blogger whose site got mirrored
by some bastard with a new, self-owned domain. There was another severe
case of plagiarism involving Podz of WordPress about 2 months ago. Somebody
in Blogger literally mirrored his entire blog, graphics included and I
think HotLinking too. His complaints to Blogger were discarded. He had to
make sure he wasn't getting penalised for duplicates. Do you see the irony?
