Hey folks, since Paul is so busy, he needs support chasing down people who copy his material online so that he can still benefit as the author and bring people to permies etc.

I used to do this job, but would like to pass it on to a willing permie (or a few if you want to break it up) if possible.

Basically, you write an email/comment to the people who use his material on their site to ask them to limit it to one or two paragraphs and one or two pictures, and provide a link to the source. You can explain that having a copy and paste of the original on multiple websites dilutes google's value of his site.

Here is a recent list - he will likely have a list of this size just once every few months. For foreign sites, you may need to go through google translator.

This one lists the URL but there is no actual link to the source:

again, there is not a proper link*anatomy*lateral_brain-labeled.jpg/
There were millions of the little blood suckers. But thanks to this tiny ad, I wasn't bitten once.
