Making great original content can be a difficult and time-consuming task. You can spend hours or days creating an article, image, or video that perfectly fits your website. That’s why it is so frustrating when someone plagiarizes your work. At Look to the Right (LTTR), we understand the importance of your work and know how to protect it. Along with internet marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) services, we specialize in plagiarism protection. We can help you through the process of plagiarism prevention, monitoring, pursuit, and enforcement.
There is no way to totally prevent plagiarism. If your content is visible to the public, there is a chance someone will try to plagiarize it. That being said, there are ways to make it more difficult. LTTR can help you disable the ability to directly copy from your website and add watermarks to pictures and videos. We can also deter plagiarism by including copyright and Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) warnings. These warnings let potential content thieves know that stealing your work comes with serious consequences.
The sheer amount of content on the web makes it seem like it would be impossible to monitor for plagiarism. However, LTTR has an arsenal of tools that notify us whenever anyone tries to pass off your content as their own. We track for plagiarism 24/7 to make sure your work wasn’t stolen. We also provide weekly and monthly reports so you have peace of mind knowing your content is safe.
When we discover any of your work has been plagiarized, we take immediate action to document the case and identify the offender(s). In many cases, we can resolve the situation through email and can get the content removed within 48 to 72 hours. However, this can take longer if the site owner has obfuscated the site information and/or is difficult to track down. In these scenarios it is a much more tedious process. We will take any steps necessary, including issuing a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown to go after the person(s) or website(s) using your content.
Your content is a revenue producing asset to your business. It can help drive sales, increase revenue, and improve brand engagement. When someone plagiarizes your work it can have a real effect on your bottom line. When LTTR pursues an instance of plagiarism, we make sure to properly document every step of the process. When your content is stolen, it can result in damages to your revenue or intellectual property. Our documentation, along with further research and an attorney, may be the difference between winning and losing your case.
If you don’t have a plan to prevent plagiarism, your content is vulnerable. Look to the Right has the tools and expertise to keep your website safe. All of our internet marketing, SEO, and plagiarism services are custom designed for each individual client. We can work within your budget to get the results you want and protection you need.
