Do you mean for their captcha? You need to be logged in to gmail for the page to work I think, if that's what you mean.

I will see what I can do about that when I've been able to sleep a bit.

And oh my cod, I just had a look at his Google page - it seems he stole the idea from Google anyway!

"Anuj Tenani - 1 Jul 2011 - Public
Google plus looks exactly like Facebook , without the blue color of course , talk about plagiarism"

Thank you for the info, I will see what I can do tomorrow.

Filing a DCMA notice on google is a good way to get them expelled from the google returns: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/dmca-notice?pli=1& - you need to have a gmail address or set one up. If a couple of authors go through the trouble of filling out a report, google will pay attention quickly. You need the URL of the story here, and on that site.

I will write to his hosting company and registrar this morning, see if I can have their site taken down.

They are auto-scraping our site on a daily basis as DD says. I don't think there's any way for Gav to stop them doing that.

Piggy-backing off all the hard work both you guys as authors do, as well as the admin staff here, is really not on.


Thanks for the info nicola, I'll file a notice the first chance I get

I've sent in 2 dmca notices to google during my lunchbreak.

The more people that do so, the better. I have sent Google his home address, or the one listed as his address anyway.

I have some close business contacts in Mumbai, I may have to make some calls depending on the response I get this week. Have to see how smart "Smart Anuj" is laughing6

They have stolen my stories as well. In the morning I will follow nicolas advice and contact google but as of now I am considering editing all of my stories to contain the disclaimer . This is unacceptable

I have also attempted to join their site under a variety of names but it appears to not be accepting new members now

Surely silence can sometimes be the most eloquent of replies

I highly recommend adding a disclaimer at the start / end of your stories.

Then when people come along and read that the stories have been stolen, they'll head over to here, where the original is kept, and the content thieves will be exposed for the *insert your favourite expletives here* they are.

What is auto-scanning?

I think every single Lush author is on that site. I recognised countless of Lushies. All stories are posted with the same date as published on Lush.

This is annoying... I know my stories are pretty average but they were written for me and I chose to share them. I don't appreciate them being stolen at all cussing

Maybe they're in the process of removing all our content.

However, if they don't remove everyone's stolen content, it's still game on as far as I'm concerned, including my friends over on other sites.

You mean scraping?

They write a program that visits us every 1 minute, if a new story is published here, they copy it, and put it on their site, all done by a computer program.

It's the same technique they use for any site, if it's lush, or any other major site they are stealing from. It doesn't matter where the stories are, they will find a way to steal them.

Nobody is visiting their site, and that was never their intention, so it's best to contact the android marketplace and report them there. You may need an android phone to do so.

I have one, so please report the locations here, and I'll file send in reports on their app, until the cows come home.

I filed a complaint with the android market and sent this lowlife an email letting him know he could face legal action.

I feel like this...person...has been peeping into my bedroom window. To say that this sucks is a gross understatement

I'm not sure I can be of any help Embarassed Even though I have a android phone and I am a member of the Android Market, I cannot find any of my stories on the application or the website to fill in a complaint with them or google crybaby

If this *ahem* person was not stealing stories, he should be removed from the web for incompetence. I have been 'Deleted' twice now, and I am still a member dontknow Just makes it easy for me for reposting LOL

I could be wrong, since it's a crappy-ass site with poor navigation, but I'm pretty sure they deleted my stories, for what it's worth.

They've removed my stories today. People should check their content again. I think "Smart Anuj" must have done some cleaning last night.

In case it's of interest, or comes in handy for anyone else:

In addition to painting his forum with my displeasure, emailing Anuj, and writing a public message on his wall, I went to every one of my stories and commented in all-caps that it was my story, and that the site stole it from me.

Maybe he wised up and removed all of our stories; if so, congrats and many thanks, Nic! If not, then it might be that only the squeakiest wheels are getting greased.

As of early this morning, my stories were removed as well as Cumgirl's. It appears he's removed all Lush authors' works and left other sites that he steals from. Good work all!

At least one of mine is still on, although I can't find the user who nicked my name (obviously).

http://9erotica.com/read/62377/?#32 I left this comment "THIS STORY HAS BEEN STOLEN FROM ME AND THE SITE IT WAS PUBLISHED ON AT www.lushstories.com!!!

STOP NICKING OUR WORK! LUSH IS THE BEST AND DOESN'T HAVE TO STEAL TO HAVE TOP STORIES!!!"

Knobheads. Them, not you.



Still working on the google reporting thingy. dontknow

I think they're ripping stories off "Lit" as well...I'm over there now and there's a story titled 'What I learned on Lit"

In the interest of "All for One, One for all" of "actual" writing sites, should we let them know??

Posted in the main forum http://9erotica.com/forum/discussion/17/this-site-steals-stories-from-www-lushstories-com#Item_1 :

Title: THIS SITE STEALS STORIES FROM www.lushstories.com

TheRealShylass 6:34PM Edit
I am the REAL Shylass, and many, if not every single author on www.lushstories.com has had work stolen from us by the thief who is running this site!

Members are seeking legal action.

Get a life, and try asking some authors for their work instead of STEALING it like an idiot!

WWW.LUSHSTORIES.COM - WHERE REAL AUTHORS POST TOP STORIES AS SOON AS THEY ARE READY!





Sorry I'm not as good at this as you guys, but I'm doing me bestest.
