Sui -

As a fellow attorney, it always amazes me when people do this who should allegedly know what they are doing (this guy passed the bar, right?).

Also a great idea for a blog post or series ... what to do when someone steals your RSS feed content. :)

Truncated RSS feeds make it more difficult, but don't stop scrapers. All it does is lose you subscribers and make the scrapers take one more step. You are better off hitting where it hurts and reporting them to their ad networks. Splits are a fact of life for bloggers.

Good luck in taking him down. Do you have preserved copies of his website and what he did? This looks like behavior that should be reported to the bars of the state(s) where he is licensed.

As an interactive marketing professional site scraping drives me nuts. I'm glad you caught this guy and you have to be loving the social PR you are getting. This is circulating all around Twitter and other networks.

On a side note, his blog is a lot easier to read, primarily because of the layout. While he is obviously a joker and thief if there is a second positive you can take from this it would be a chance to see what your content would look like a more readable layout and design.


FYI, the link to "Michael Rehm" points to http://www.rehmlawoffice.com/, which is for a lawyer in Sacramento. Not sure if that's what you really meant to link to.

The link to the blog, however, is correct.

Shortly after you posted this, I went to the archive.org to see how long he had been copying your site (turns out it has been a few months).

Tonight I went to check again to show someone, and his blog has been removed from the archives. I assume he requested it.
