Violet Blue: My erotica is not your child porn

In today's San Francisco Chronicle column, Violet Blue has advice about what to do when your blog's content has been hijacked by a spam blog, which offered her content as child porn bait:

[ . . ]

Adorkable Grrl didn't just write a blog post and send e-mails; she also sent a cease and desist to the offending Web site, and asked for my advice. Being no stranger to having my content reposted without permission, or having my RSS feeds pilfered, I did a quick public records (whois) lookup for the URL offering her content as child porn bait, and discovered that the site was registered in India, but hosted by American company GoDaddy. I sent Adorkable Grrl the information, telling her to take extreme measures:

"Along with the e-mail cease and desist, send them a physical, registered mail copy of the notice of action. Also tell them that their false affiliation with your content brings to your attention their advertisement of pornographic material that is in direct violation of U.S. child pornography laws, and that you are left with no choice but to forward their information to the following entities:

1) Reporting Child Pornography. Provides contact details of field offices of the FBI in major cities throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.

2) CyberTip Line — NCMEC. Handles calls and online reports of sexual exploitation of children.

3) Adult Sites Against Child Pornography. Nonprofit organization that works with the United States Customs Service and the FBI in enforcing anti-child-pornography laws. Includes their goals, FAQs, press releases, details of members, and a facility to report suspected sites.

Tell GoDaddy. I'm sure once GoDaddy finds out (and is aware you're reporting them to the FBI), they'll yank the site altogether. How awful; these people are truly horrifying."

The San Francisco Chronicle article has a lot of useful information as well.

How many sex bloggers have actually posted the Creative Commons on either their blog or individual post? That would be an interesting discussion. It seems to be cropping up more and more.
