Copying online is a pretty rampant activity. Most blog owners don't even know it's being done to them. Copying takes place in taking a few words, to copying a paragraph here and there to the full blow plagiarism of an entire blog post. Even on this blog, if you've noticed.. copying anything usually gets an attribution.. one that I've personalized that appears once content has been copied using a tool called Tynt Copy / Paste tool. However, if you're in a situation where you just want to pursue the offender(s) you can always email the website or blog owner and issue a cease and desist letter. The issuance of this is to put that individual on notice that they have taken content that does not belong to them and that if they do not comply with the removal of what has been taken that they can or will be sued.
