Sieblogs Plays Dirty

Thanks to this post at IPTAblog for pointing out Sieblogs, which is pulling content from several blogs (Largehearted Boy included) without attribution. Note this post on the site (and my original post). If you blog, check to see if Sieblogs is using your intellectual property without attribution or permission.

I have no issue with my posts being excerpted, but the lack of attribution and their inclusion as whole pieces are concerns. I was tempted at first to limit my RSS and Atom feeds to short excerpts, but that doesn't solve the problem and only hurts those who read my site with aggregators. For the moment, I have request via a comment on one of the offending posts that my posts be removed from the site, and that future Largehearted Boy posts not appear on the site. Meanwhile, I'll contemplate blogging and intellectual property rights...
