MyLot Stealing Blog Content
I received the following (edited) email from myLot.com on the 18th April:
We are excited to inform you that myLot.com is now syndicating John Bakers Blog on our website!
Our editors have handpicked your blog based on the interests of our members. myLot is already syndicating your blog, http://johnbakersblog.co.uk/, on myLot.com. If you would like to continue syndicating your blog on myLot you have nothing further to do. If you would like for us to stop syndicating your blog, kindly respond to this email and let us know.
I replied immediately and asked them to remove my content from their site. They did not reply and continued to use my content. I emailed them again the next day, and again the day after that.
myLot have still not acknowledged my emails and they continue to upload the contents of my blog on a daily basis.
My first thought was that myLot were using a morally dubious inertia selling technique, something I had to opt-out of to stop them using my work. But since they don’t respond to my emails and continue to use my work in spite of knowing that I don’t wish them to, then they are quite simply, thieves.
