There are people in almost every field of life who likes doing theft of others hard work to become successful through short cut. they just can't work hard to build their own ideas and then implement them. some people steals others ideas, some steals others content. Similarly in the world of Internet theft is also everywhere.

People steals Content written by bloggers and post that content on their own sites in hope of getting web traffic. stealing copyrighted Pics, Videos and articles is very common. as the Internet is becoming larger this theft is also increasing day by day. however Web companies like Google are also taking different steps to counter content theft through DMCA actions and Algorithm penalties like Panda, penguin and Manual actions.

When a person who written a post after hard work of hours sees his content copied on another website he definitely hates it. Here is a funny image about how a Blogger Reacts When Someone Steals His Content and not even gives backlink as credit for his content.
