Someone copy my wiki, 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 :-)
