Default Ezine article copied!

I got accepted at Ezine for an article I wrote, what, 2 days ago and I find my article on another site today.

xxxhttp://casinoalive.wordpress.com/

I found it through statcounter. A hit came straight off that site.

My links are still in tact, so what should I do?

Look at the date of the article too. April 2009. I barely wrote it a month ago!

Here's my article on Ezine

This clearly isn't right....but since your links are intatct that is a good thing...but...

This is a case of copying....and if it turns out to be a GIA or GPWA member I would want to know who it was.

This person has started a new site and plans on using stolen content without permission.....yes putting the links in there is good...but this kind of thing should never be done without permission.

To much of this going on. So much copying without permission, link or not. Personally, I wouldn't want it there.

This blog only has this one page. I don't see a website.

Looks like they had permission. A friend found this on Ezine for me.........

You have permission to publish this article electronically or in print, free of charge, as long as you leave the article title, author name, body and resource box intact (means NO changes) with the links made active and you agree to our posted publisher terms of service.

I should have researched first before posting here! I need to check into it more, when I have time.

seeing your post made me check that site and I had 2 articles live, one from 2006 and one from 2007. One was gambling and the other was for an eBay store.

So I updated them and now they're telling me the author name is not matching on the eBay one. So I deleted it. fk-em

Although I see they added a wysiwyg editor that site was always a pain in the azz to get line breaks, especially for those that wern't familiar with html.

I gave you a 5 star vote on your article.

Thanks, wts, for the 5 Stars! I really appreciate it!

Yeah, I had a difficult time getting a decent looking link into my bio because my HTML skills are lacking, somewhat! lol

So they sent me an email saying my second published article from 2006 had a problem with the author name after I edited it and it can't be published. I never changed the author name. f em

Um, the point of EzineArticles is that your content will get syndicated to other sites. Providing your name and links remain, anyone can re-publish their content.

Yup, you are 95% correct.

Links are not important... the only important thing is a link to the autor page.

Alex777,

I was one of the those, back when I started gambling online, that NEVER read the T&C's of any bonus I took. What makes you think I would read the T&C's of Ezine?!?! (JK)

Anyway, I do understand now that whoever it was that used my article on their site (I'm patting myself on the back LOL), had permission.

Thanks!
