Impersonation, Plagiarism and Watermarking


Lately I've been reading a lot about people stealing blog content and the content popping up on blogs that impersonate the original authors. One person in particular, Faith, figured out a way to get her impersonator shut down and listed the resources that might help if you find yourself so unlucky. Plagiarism is awfully scary when it involves your children's photos being taken by a stranger who intends to use it for their own freaky agenda but it's a risk you take by blogging. There are precautionary tools you can use to make it more difficult for someone to pass off your stuff as theirs so going forward I will be watermarking all images of Dylan. It isn't what I want to do but it is what I must do to protect Dizmommy. What a crazy world we live in! On a positive note, my husband has offered to share his high quality photos of Dylan with me for use on dizmommy.com and I figure that will make up for the annoying little branding.
