While on the topic of plagiarism, if you have your blog’s RSS feed set to “Full Text” I would suggest that you change that to “Summary.” A full text feed is the best type of feed for plagiarists. All they have to do is copy the entire content of your feed and place it on their site. In other words, you hand deliver your content to them to copy.
If you use the summary option, they have to actually visit your site to copy your text. And, to make it even more cumbersome for them to copy the text, install the WP-CopyProtect plugin and configure it to “Disable right click,” and “Disable text selection.” By choosing those two options, plagiarists are unable to select, copy and paste your text. It also disables Ctrl+A (select all command) and Ctrl+C (copy command).
I’ve installed it on all of my other blogs. I’m on the fence about installing it on NJFM. I don’t want to make it harder for readers who legitimately use parts of my content to help spread encouragement and motivation to others who need it.
Always a Work Around
I want to caution that this plugin doesn’t make it impossible for plagiarists to copy your text. It just makes it more difficult. Sort of like car thieves. Anti-theft devices make it a little more difficult for thieves to steal a car, but if they really want your car, they’ll figure out how to get it. What anti-theft devices do is it prevents the petty thieves that haven’t quite figured out the work around yet.
