I have posted my article on the code project

How to create scalable services with WCF 4.0 Router and Discovery services[^]

And found it on the internet copied word for word at this link (without reference to the original site, or author).

http://www.cyqdata.com/cnblogs/article-detail-35249[^]

Is this legal?

Looks like that site is just ripping all content from codeproject?

Goto this URL http://www.cyqdata.com/cnblogs/. Then check recent articles against this site, blatant copies.

e.g. http://www.codeproject.com/KB/recipes/notepadre.aspx

Obviously, the behavior is something not-legal. The copy site is flagged as insecure by my firewall.

Nope, not legal. You should post this in the Site Bugs and uggestions Forum[^].

Please report to CodeProject administration; use Main menu -> Help!
It may not help, but better do it. What happened could be considered as a crime.

Hi,

I guess Site bugs / suggestions could be a better place to ask this, since it's more closely monitored by the staff.

I think we all should follow (I also posted there). If they have 1K posts with a hint that the article is copied gives a bad reference. Better late then never...

I wouldn't say it was a crime, after all the article belongs to the public domain once you post it publically. All that website does is mirror articles from here. It's unethical, yes, but not illegal.
