  3. Hahah..a Boone’s Farm episode? Wine coolers? That would be awesome. Yeah, it’s a ginger snap tin I use for a spit bucket! Not sure about what you mean about the footer.

  4. With having so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagiarism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

      Since most of my stuff is video, it’s pretty hard for someone to outright plagiarize my content. But my content is also Creative Commons so I’m not concerned if someone re-posts it as long as they attribute it to me. I guess I’ve been lucky to not find my stuff just floating out there, but I also distribute my review videos to as many places as I can, so I’m already flooding the ‘net before someone else can. My Sommelier School stuff is only hosted here, but it’s still Creative Commons, so if someone wanted to re-post it they can. I’ve had a couple people do that, but I’ve asked them to only do my reviews. They’ve complied with my request even though legally they could re-post it.

      Now, with that said, really the only way to combat copyright violations is to send cease and desist letters/e-mails to those offenders. I’d look for some kind of copyright form letter that you can send. Unless you’ve got the extra money to hire a copyright lawyer and sue those, there’s not too much else to do other than threaten a lawsuit. I’d point out that you’ve copyrighted your content and that it can’t be used without permission.

      This has been an age-old problem on the Internet since it’s so easy to copy and paste material. Unfortunately the little guy can easily get screwed. Another avenue, if they won’t listen to reason, is to post comments on their blogs pointing to your content (of course they could delete them), use twitter and facebook to publicly out them for stealing your content, and possibly contact their hosting company (if you can figure it out or get them to tell you) and their user agreement may have something about not stealing copyrighted material.

      Hope this helps a bit.
