    Hello. The dmoz-listed website xxx stole my press release (original source: yyy )

    And they published it on their blog (with their links, like they wrote it :( ): Xzzz

    We aren't the internet police; we just list websites that we think contain useful and unique content.

    If they've copied some of your site, that's a matter between your lawyers and their lawyers.

    Hi. But we are talking about a quality here.... how (DMOZ listed) "quality" site can do things like this? ... I mean if it's quality.... and "original" ..... why....


    I know and understand that you'r not a police ;) But, you can control the quality of listed websites.


    Thank you. Alex.

    Sorry, we do not control listed websites. Only their owners can do such a thing.

    There is a good reason why we can and will not act in these cases. Now you make this claim. What if tomorrow the other person comes here a claims you are the ony who copied the content. Who should we believe.
    As long as websites have enough other unique content we keep them listed.
    It is a problem between you and that other person. You will have to contact him.
    We can do nothing for you.

    1). This is my content and I can 100% prove it. (it is free to publish in original version, but why they modified it "like they wrote it" and like they are the owners...)
    2). You can not control the listed websites and what they are doing, but you can control the quality of DMOZ directory
    3.
    Thanks.....
