Chalk it up to naivete, I s'pose. I ain't the smartest one, technology-wise, so it was with shock and flattery (but mostly shock) that I discovered numerous sites have been posting my material without permission. Yes, yes, I'm happy you think my shit is good enough to steal, but seriously, stop stealing from me. It goes without saying, I guess, that if you're reading this on a site that isn't kl5film.com, it's not my site and you should leave there and come to my site, kl5film.com. (Note: When I started my blog, I gave permission to BlogDance to use my feed, but that's the only rss/xml news-reader site I've done that with.)
I was able to contact most of the sites who were using my material, but one group eluded me. A bunch of sites with different names—but seemingly run by the same person (listed only as DME)—had no contact info, so I have resorted to posting this childish rant with the purpose of hopefully shaming the person in charge of those sites into complying. I included below a sample screenshot of a DME site that has been using my feed without permission. (If you're reading this post on one of those sites, it probably looks like a Russian nesting doll right now.) Anyway, I'd kindly appreciate it if you stopped tooking from me (or at least asked my permission in the future).
(Again, as I've said before, I'm really naive when it comes to technology and whatnot, so I don't know if this kind of shit is standard operating procedure when it comes to blogging. It's probably legal, for all I know. I just say all this as a common courtesy kind of thing: Ask my permission before posting my shit—or, at the very least, credit me and link to my site.)
