I never know where my stories will turn up. It's a bit disconcerting as I try to ascertain whether or not copyright has been violated. I'll share an example: Last night I was Googling myself (it's a good practice to get into regularly if you write for living) and found my latest Christian Science Monitor story on foreclosure bus tour turning up in all sorts of places. They go from simple links or blurbs (which is cool) to out and out reprints (which I'm not sure is cool).
Here's what I found:
Northeast Ohio River: A stream of posts from Northeast Ohio blogs
World Hum: Travel Dispatches from a shrinking planet (a Travel Channel blog)
Sarasota Herald-Tribune Creating Spaces blog
Axcess News: News for the X Generation (a full reprint with credit to CSM but no permission)
Sedona.biz: Will full reprint and photos and no permission from CSM
Topix.com: Solon Wire
The Simple Family
Business.com: With many listings from above
But then I also received an e-mail from an American living in Iran who wrote a lengthy note demonstrating the power of the Web. A writer from Cleveland publishes a story in a Boston-based newspaper that is eventually read on the news ticket of Yahoo Iran!
