Recently, I’ve been myself a victim of copyright infringement. Therefore, I decided to start looking for plugins that can at least solve partially the problem. I must be honest with you, there is now perfect plugin, but I assure you that a combination of 2 or 3 of those below, will certainly drive nuts anyone who tries to copy anything from your website. If you think the Chinese or the Indians are those that copy the most, well think twice. My first article that was entirely copied was done so by an American. So, no more prejudices (at least from my part)!
The descriptions below are of course written by those who created the plugins. If you want to download them, you can do so be simply searching them on wordpress (it takes about 30 seconds). Nevertheless, please make sure that this article reaches as many persons as it can get, in order to fully protect their intellectual property! Many thanks and cheers!
Respect our work! Don’t copy our articles!
