My Sys-Con Nightmare

Aral Balkan – My Sys-Con Nightmare:

"It all started at the end of March, 2009, when I discovered that I was listed as an author on a site called Ulitzer. They had used my name as a subdomain on their site […] and the site presented a photo of me, stating that I had been an author with them for several years. They had also scraped my blog posts and were reproducing them on the site under a different license to the one that I had published them under.

Beyond simply using my content without permission, they had misappropriated my identity by stating that I was one of their authors. And I wasn't the only one."
