When I was still on the Blogger platform, there was this guy who copied my blog post word-by-word. His action made me look for means to penalize his blog but it was all to no avail. I’ve never tried DMCA before the incident, so I rushed to their site looking for refuge, only for me to find out that they charge $199 (N71,640) to take down a site for copyrighted content.
The charges were too much for someone like me. I began to think, instead of paying that huge sum to them, I can invest the money in other things. This drove me to look for other alternatives, at first, I searched heaven and earth for a free take down service, but I didn’t find any.
Thankfully, I stumbled upon a code that prevents other people from copying from a blog. This code doesn’t only prevent copying from a blog, it also stops Right-click function. I copied the code, placed it on my Blogger sidebar and voila! It worked.
