I Livestreamed How to Handle Stolen Blog Posts

In what seems to be a biweekly occurrence, this afternoon I had to deal with a blog that was republishing my blog posts in their entirety without my permission and in full violation of my copyright rights. I was rather aggravated about the situation. Rather than just fuming and venting on Twitter (I did some of that) I tried to turn it into a teaching opportunity. So I opened up the the YouTube app on my Android phone and livestreamed the process that I go through every time I find a blog that is stealing my work. To my surprise more than sixty people joined the stream to see the process. If you missed it, you can watch the recording as embedded below followed by the resolution that I received about fifteen minutes later.
