Promoting or Plagiarising?

When another site lifts part of your content and posts it in their own website, could you consider that copying as helping (promoting) your site? or is it plagiarising your content?

My take on the above is to see if the ‘other’ site give credit by way of links back to your site as the source of the content. This way, the post is actually helping drive new traffic to your site. However, if this ‘other’ site incorporates your content and claims it as their own, then its violating YOUR copyright.

Either way you look at it, i stumbled upon this cool site called copyscape that quickly shows the top 10 sites that have the same content as yours.

I like it so much I am going to add it to my tools links. This is post is NOT Paid or Sponsored in any way.
