    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping
    it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off?
    I’d really appreciate it.
