Preventing Your Blog's Content Theft

Plagiarism has been at its peak now a days with newspaper media and other bloggers stealing online content available in blogs.
Well,displaying a Copyscape Banner and a CC License on your Blog reduces the Content Theft.

I will explain how to prevent your Blog's Content Theft by the following methods:
A>Copyscape Banner: You can add a 'Copyscape Banner' to your Blog to warn about Stealing content from your blog!
->Visit this website http://www.copyscape.com/banners.php?o=f
->Click on the banner of your choice
->Copy the HTML code displayed below the banner you just clicked
->Go to your Blog-> Layout Tab-> Page Elements tab->Click on 'Add a Gadget'->Select 'HTML/Javascript' Gadget-> Paste the code
->Save and close.

B>Creating a Creative Commoners License for your Blog: Obtain the CC license for your Blog and Display it on your sidebar to show the world that You are the Author of this Blog and your blog is Authorised and will not tolerate any content theft.
->Visit this link: http://creativecommons.org/choose/
->Fill in the essential details in the spaces given and click on 'Select a License'
->Select the CC License Logo of your choice

->Periodically visit this website http://www.copyscape.com/
->Give the url of your blog in the space given on this website and click 'Go'
-> This website displays the list of website whose blog's content matches with your blog's content!
->In this way,you will be able to track if your blog's content has been stolen or not.
