Recently, while answering a Server Fault question, I stumbled upon a copied Server Fault question and answer at what looks like a content aggregation or text scraping site.
- Here's the original thread: SPF include: too many IP addresses
- Here's the copied site:
To be fair, the "copied" site gives attribution to all of its scraped content. However, this brought up an interesting topic in my mind which led to three questions:
- Is there even an offense if a site scrapes trilogy content or are we all just one big GPL family?
- If this is an offense, does attribution (such as what AnswerSpice does) lessen the offense in cases like this?
- What is the proper thing to do if a site is found to be scraping content from one of the trilogy sites in a way that is not allowed?
