How can you handle Plagiarism_

Plagiarism is a practice of taking someone’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own in simple words. There are common types of Plagiarism like direct plagiarism, self-plagiarism, mosaic plagiarism, accidental plagiarism. But if we see plagiarism is bad it is not always bad and threatening, it is believed that if the plagiarizer is linking back to the source. Whereas some plagiarizers become easy victims in the hands of the content writers they hire or employee who copy the content to achieve their aim of completing the assignment. 

Plagiarism sometimes occurs due to the lack of information to rectify the differences between copying and reading for knowledge to create one’s content or article which makes the publisher an easy targeted victim for plagiarism.

To take that forward, enmity is not an option and it is always dubious to create such scenarios when you might face any mishappening in return so it is advisable to focus on cultivating relationships, achieving goals, and incur profits for the business because it is never beneficial to create a gang of a nemesis for oneself that can affect the work and creativity hand in hand with needless conflicts.

Now there is one more problem that might occur is when the DMCA backfires which means immediately reacting on the plagiarizer and creating another land of wrath due to your emotional issues, but if you want to hand this one smartly think like it is business and try to contact to the plagiarizer to comprehend the reason behind the fact. 

The best approach to Plagiarism is to politely communicate with them regarding the content and probe about the whereabouts of the content they have gathered from the source.

The first approach towards plagiarizers is to communicate with them and request to remove the plagiarized content that they have copied from your content, and then if this approach does not work well, you can reach for legal help against plagiarism and the plagiarizer by filing a complaint in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) that empowers to ask Google to remove their pages from their index with a legitimate right to alert the domain name registrar and web host report the infringement on my content and copyrights, and this is to explain about the remedies to the disposal and not to threaten but to take it as a precautionary measure. 

You can prevent Plagiarizers by adding no right click script to prevent anyone from manually copying your created content, but that might get problematic when the same activated feature might prevent someone from sharing your content on social media, quoting it, and an article, sharing it through email with friends. 

Therefore, the right-click prevention idea is not technically very acceptable for anyone who creates the content on their own. 

WordFence is another great idea to stop the bots from stealing your ideas, something useful in WordPress just by blocking them from accessing your content. 

Well rules can be set-up automatically to block scrape when they exceed thresholds of numbers of pages requested per minute, and WordFence provides live traffic statistics that can be segmented by IP address, server response code, and other configurations, providing you an opportunity to look the defaulters, as well as identifying the hosts, user agents to block them. 

Some companies host malicious scrapers in a routine and with WordFence you can simply block the cloud services which means, blocking a plethora of scrapers per day.

Although, Google claims that they have claimed to give attribution to the original content publishers, but it is always advisable to proactively block the scrapers with the WordPress security or bot blocker plugin, and can also hire a team from some well-known brands to monitor content theft by utilizing their services. 

So be careful from the world full of Plagiarism and be the superhero to save your content!
