After a website reproduced one of my entire blog posts and took credit for it, I filed a copyright complaint with the host server which disabled the content 48 hours later. Here’s the update from Hostgator:

Please let us know if you see any further issues. Thank you.”
I’m impressed with these guys. They acted quickly. They kept me in the loop. And they followed up. Which all goes to show that if someone does plagiarize your blog, at least one server will act on it. Good on ’em.
