Someone copy my wiki without giving credits to it, what can i do?

One approach might be to watermark the pages in some way, perhaps some non-visible metadata using meta tags, or additional visible and non-visible copyright notices and links back to the original wiki. It is one way i dealt with some bots copying content of mine on another service and was effective enough.

Not a lot of options. Basically you can

  • ask them nicely not to
  • publically shame them
  • complain to their hosting provider (rarely works)
  • sue them

Some people just don't understand and will react positively to a friendly request either to remove material or attribute the source :-)
