    I’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt
    for something relating to this.

  2. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either
    created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up
    all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being stolen?
    I’d truly appreciate it.
