The story behind our service

In January 2019, 1.94 billion websites were registered worldwide, and more are coming daily. This means that the battle for the good rankings in the search results is fierce, and many companies therefore invest heavily in search engine optimization to increase the likelihood that their website will be displayed ahead of the competition.

Search engine optimization means optimizing your website to live up to several of Google’s ranking factors, of which there are more than 200. One of these ranking factors is unique and good content, which is why many companies invest in copywriting of unique texts so that their website is not penalized for duplicate content.

Unfortunately, many also choose to copy content from other websites when they need to have content on their own website. When they do this, they not only create duplicate content, but they also violate copyright law.

To fight copyright infringement

At illegalcopying.com we help you to fight against those who violate your copyright. Companies, webshops and bloggers experience their texts being copied daily. For them, a copyright violation can mean lost revenue as Google penalizes duplicate content. So their website gets prioritized in the search results when their texts are on several different websites.

If companies have to keep track of when and what texts are copied, they would not be able to do anything else. For many, it is a coincidence when they discover that a competitor has copied the text they have spent several hours writing.
illegalcopying.com was founded to help companies protect the content of their websites so that companies can maintain their copyright. That’s why we at illegalcopying.com have developed a system that automatically notifies you when others copy your content.

Behind the concept is lawyer Søren V. Andreasen, IT specialist John Nielsen and technical expert Ken Boye, who is one of the founders of the successful company DanDomain. Together, we offer a system that protects your content and notifies you when your content is copied. In addition, we provide proof of the copied text, and finally, we offer legal aid for the collection of remuneration and compensation for the offense. You can read more about the people behind here.

Illegal copying is a problem rising

Illegal copying of other people’s texts is a growing problem. Although theft is the case, many do not consider it to be illegal. We regularly find that those who have copied someone else’s text are misunderstood when submitting a financial claim for remuneration and reimbursement.

Many also think they can avoid paying the claim if they just remove the text again, but this is not the case. Before submitting a claim, we carry out a digital proof of evidence so that we can prove that there has been a violation of copyright law. You can read more about the process here.

The reason why copying the texts of others is a growing problem is because today it is easy and fast to copy the texts of others. Ctrl C + ctrl V… it’s so easy – it takes just seconds to copy content from one place to another.

In the vast majority of industries you can quickly find another text about what you would like to write about on your website. Instead of spending several hours writing good text yourself, you can take the text from someone else in just a few seconds – or compose texts from several different websites.

You have copyright to your texts

Your texts – regardless of length – are protected by copyright law. Texts are regarded as works on a par with, for example, pictures and paintings.
