Who Took My Site?

There's an interesting conversation going around the blogosphere about what constitutes a blog and whether blogs should even be defined. I've so far not commented about it here, preferring instead just to join in the conversation elsewhere.

But, an article on law.com caught my eye. Seems as though there's been a rash of website hijacking going on. Allegations are flying like cat fur that people are stealing business by copying websites. That problem bears somewhat on the defining blog conversation that's likewise flying like cat fur.

But, just as a notice to copyright violators out there - this site's copyrighted. As if you couldn't have guessed.

Apparently, this site got hijacked, and sales fell. The site helps you sell your items on Ebay. Although I haven't used it, I have visited the site - perhaps unwittingly the wrong one.

An interesting conundrum, both for the reader and both purveyors. The original creator loses the return on her investment, and the hijacker reaps the benefit without the work. Meanwhile, the poor customer (or blog reader) is left without the original service bargained for.
