However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t fight the good fight. 😀
Some (most) of the copybotters don’t even attempt to hide what they are doing, using the same vendor ads as the original (and legal) creators. When you see a copybotter, it would be nice to drop a line to (one of) the original creators, so that they can file a DMCA claim and have the copybotter removed.
