Has your site been copied?

You've spent weeks getting your website content just how you want it.

It's your own special creation and no-one can ever take it away from you, can they?

Wrong. Unfortunately, there are always people who think it's ok to take things from others, and your web content is fair game to them.

Luckily, there is a free service that can check who has been availing themselves of your content. Copyscape.

Try typing www.blotdesign.com into Copyscape to see who the bad boys are that have been nicking text from the Blot home page..

Check out Copyscape . . .

Read why they think it's ok. . .
