    You could set up a Google alert with some of your article titles or key phrases?

    This website could also be of use to you: http://www.tynt.com/

      Also I have uploaded wp-copyrightpro to several of my websites - a free plugin, just google it - and it makes it much harder to copy any content on the pages.

      Hope this helps

        u could also use copyscape - think they have something that prevents people from copy and pasting your content

            Nothing can stop copy and paste, most of the time all the user has to do is turn off javascript. There are 1001 ways to get content from someones website.

    It's going to happen. Best accept it.

    Although there are things you can do - as others have posted - ultimately if someone wants to copy your articles then they will.

    In some ways I guess it's a back-handed compliment....people thinking your work is good enough to "borrow."

    Yours,

    Andy.

      I use a WP plug-in called Blog Protector. It disables the 'select all' and 'copy' function for my blog contents. You can read more about it here:

      Also, be sure to note on your contents that you have the copyright.

    You can't protect yourself from people copying your content. I would never use those tools, btw. I hate when I go to a website and they are so paranoid that you can't right click or select on anything. IMO, only like .01% of your visitors would even think of copying your content, it's not worth it to piss of the 99.9% of visitors just to make it slightly harder to steal content.

    You should install Blog Protector which can protect your article content from getting copied and there is another plugin which works same is Wp-CopyRightPRo 2.5 which protects iframes, protects from drag and drop images, disable right click on blog, disable selection of text.

    You can install a free plugin for wordpress: no right click, there are others that also do the same job
    You can also put a link to Googles digital millenium copyright act which means if you find anybody who copies your content, you can send thier URL to Google who will investigate and ban them from serps

    To be really honest, you can't do anything. There are some methods (JavaScript) which makes it possible to disable right click and copy pasting on your web pages, but still that can be cracked as well, by disabling JavaScript in any browser or simply they can copy from your source code or by CTRL+A , CTRL+ C and Finally CTRL+V on Notepad or MS Word. So pretty much pointless, as scrapper guys will copy it anyhow.

    The best method will be to just keep an eye on those content scrapper guys, and if they copy your content straight away go for DMCA notice to their hosts, and report them in Google webmaster tools.

    Last and best option for me would be to setup a warning page on website along with your privacy policy that "You''ll Take strict action against those, who will be found copying your articles" just to scare them (Sounds unusual, but works most of the time).

      I agree. The disabling right clicking and stuff will only work on real humans, not bots/scrappers. Most of the time real human readers or visitors to your site will not be copying anything.

      Also, keep in mind that disabling right click and such will only make it harder for legit bloggers and webmasters to quote and link your content.

    I have developed a method for Wordpress that turns text into images. You can't copy that! It's useful but it kind of uses CPU resources.

    There is an old saying that goes something like this:

    If you do not want it copied, then do not put it online!

    Anything and everything can be copied and nothing is 100% secure. Many have tried locking ebooks, no right click on sites, encryption of scripts (this list goes on and on) but the fact is there is always a way around protection.

      Most bots will scrape your content through your rss feed if enabled. Here is a plugin which will allow you to add a copyright statement and a link to the original article, to the TOP of your feed entries, in an effort to hamper content scrapers.
