Proving that content is mine | Front Office Box Users

Can I steal your ideas, or can you steal mine? While you wouldn’t do that, I know, there are people around who would. How can we protect our work?

Some weeks ago I got wound up when Zemanta offered me a link which sounded familiar. In fact it wasn’t like something I’d written it WAS a headline I’d written. This did not please me.

I headed straight over to the site and, happily, found somebody had reposted one my articles, but with full accreditation. This is a compliment I’m happy to accept. End of panic and everything went back to being right in the world.

Then the thought came over me. If it had been a rip-off what could I have done? Not very much was my guess.

That’s why the recent release of the Copyright Proof plugin for WordPress blogs – from Digiprove – got my attention.

Installing the plugin and opening an account with Digiprove does a couple of things which enable me to protect my copyright.

The nice label at the bottom of the post should be enough to put off all but the most crooked of copiers. Where it doesn’t I have a record in the Digiprove database confirming the work is mine and when it was created.

That means I can be a little less paranoid from now on.

Can You.

BTW I have no relationship, of any kind, with Digiprove other than I’m using the plugin and service for all our blogs from now on.
