To Catch a Thief, the Thifty Sue Edition

I’m all for a more liberal version of copyright, but where a site steals every single post you write at 4aus.com, even when you work your arse off for it to find those offers…well, that’s a different kettle of fish.

Let me introduce to you “Thrifty Sue.”

And before you say “there is no proof” look at the picture above. The watermark was intentionally placed once I realized they were copying all of the free stuff from 4aus.com to try to catch them copying our text and pictures.

Suffice to say, they were caught in the act.

It gets worse: the site claims the following:

We are a family of 9, yes, you heard me right, and we actually have 7 children. I’m sure that you probably want to ask “How do you do it?” Well that’s what I’m here to talk about. With a large family such as ours, we realized early on that we needed to figure out a way to make sure we were still getting all the necessities and not breaking the bank in the process.

Balls.

I’ve done the research on the site, and every single free offer they’ve done for weeks copies 4aus.com. They even copy the language, but change it near the end.

You know the thing that disgusted me more is when I found that they are working affiliate pumping via CheckMyStats a company I work with.

So basically a company I work with is promoting a site that steals all my content with a few changes, but promotes others via an affilaite offer.

I guess there is no honour amongst thieves.

UPDATE

I’ve now sent a DMCA notice to their host.

I’m not fond of the DMCA in the US, but if you’re going to copy me, at least make an effort to not make it so blatent 🙂
