Few Years back, I had published a post about handling Plagiarism and I informed about Plagiarism prevention in Google Knol.
In this post we will see how to prevent Copyright Infringements , especially how Google is working on to prevent any Copyright Infringements.
Few months back, Google had released panda update to its Search Engine to reduce search rank of scrapped contents.
But it seems this update affects the original content author also in some ways. For example, assume that you are publishing a Tutorial about Wordpress blog today in your website. If your site is NOT having enough backlinks, Google may take few days to crawl and index your post. But, if a scrapping site with strong link building scraps your Wordpress blog Tutorial and publish it in their site, Google bot will start indexing it today itself. So, there will a possibility for your original content to be treated as spam by Google.
So, now preventing copyright infringements becomes very critical. Google is willing to help the authors to prevent copyright infringement of their original content by allowing them to file DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) complaint easily from web form.
You can start doing it from here.
According to Google Official blog post, Google will take action within 24 hours of receiving DMCA complaint.
