Another Stolen Blog: WaterWired

WaterWired, a blog written by Michael E. 'Aquadoc' Campana, is being scraped by a the Atmospheric Water Generation website/psuedoblog, an outfit selling water products. They have scraped his entire blog content word for word, including his most recent post protesting their action.

You can email them in protest by writing to "Gary" at, presuming, that is, that the email address is legitimate. Commenting on the "blog" is not possible.

UPDATE 20Nov2010 1:26 pm: Gary has written back saying that "the webmaster did this without authorization." He has removed all the WaterWired content! No need to write more emails. :)

Sent an email with subject "Blog theft is unethical and illegal," and message "Regarding your site, Atmospheric Water Generation, not only is the title patently ridiculous, but the content is completely stolen, without proper attribution or permission. You might want to reconsider your marketing plan.
