A side-effect of the Zemanta Pixie is that it makes it MUCH easier for blog scrapers to steal the entire post, which they are not actually allowed to do.
Quote of the day? My own:
Please take down my post:
Which has been stolen in its entirety and reposted on your site here:
Not stated, but implied, “or else.”

andraz 1 day ago in reply to raincoaster Zemanta reblog feature cannot be used for scrapping entire post, since it always requires user to choose one single paragraph when he tries to reblog. I think the scrappers you are seeing aren’t using Reblog, but are doing plain copy&paste or copying from your feed. Naturally I might be wrong, so if you have any indicator they really are using reblog somehow, let me know.
Independently from the above, you can easily change reblog button to one saying “Zemified” or to invisible one inside your Zemanta Preferences. This way there will be no Zemanta Reblog functionality available for your post.
