There’s nothing worse than putting weeks or even years into refining the content on your website, that identifies who you are and what identifies you as unique in the marketplace, only to find out another company has copied your content and is using it on their website, pretending your carefully crafted words are theirs.
How to protect yourself?
We use a service called https://copyscape.com/, which notifies us every two weeks of who has copied our content and where they are using it.
We then follow a process of first notifying them that we are aware of their having copied content on their website, and giving them a week to remove it.
Usually this takes care of the problem!
