Robert Scoble makes a great point

It’s late here in Honolulu and I probably should not be writing at this hour, but I had to comment on a post over on Robert Scoble’s blog. He talks about how he is seeing his post show up on other sites without attribution and some other issues that are concerning that surround blog networks.

First of all I see content from this site on other sites all the time without attribution, when I ask that they stop it is largely ignored, and I will tell you why I think this is, I think these sites are trying to build page rank with content I publish. I understand that occasional lapse but I had a site taken down last month which had nearly 1000 post that where verbatim from this site.

So far as the blog network issues, I must say I read the corresponding article and will say that I am concerned because I have seen others use the same tactic in a different sort of way, I will explain that tactic in more detail when I have a real world example to put up for everyone to look at.
