    Okay, Anti-Leech sounds like the best plugin for blocking sploggers; I especially love the fact that it'll spoof the splogger with fake content – beautiful! Thank you for this article.

  • He Cuishan, Not using "Blog Protector" since I copied and pasted the entire article and claimed it as my own. I expect I'll find out which one they use sooner or later. (Just kidding!)

    But you have to wonder why no response. Is it because they made their case = Anti-Leech right off the bat?

  • I use Bad Behavior on RINF.

    Not sure which ones David Smith (article author) uses on his blog.

    Pleas I need a Plugin (WordPress) Copyright images by writing on images my site name!! is dow possible?.

    • Jym Tarrant

      Just edit the images with software, Pixlr.com is free and will do the job ok. 

      You can easily optimize the image size and quality at the same time, which will speed up your page loading time.

  • Protecting a content not to be copied is a very complicated work.  Once it is displayed on the browser it can be copied then.   For images, it is better to put a watermark.  For the text content, I don’t know a thing to avoid others copying on it.  However, those suggestions above are better than doing nothing at all.  At least you can avoid newbie people copying your content.
