I found out tonight that my blog has been copied verbatim—pictures, verbiage (as best I can tell), layout, the whole nine yards and translated into German (I think it's German) to sell pharmaceutical drugs I suspect are bogus. Even my blog title was translated to “Junie Mond.” It's a total mirror image except with the drug stuff added.
This was discovered because of a new authority rating given to me by Technorati. I went to see what this was about and was shocked to make this discovery.
Do ya’ll know what this means? Have you heard of this happening before? I can’t read German so I’m not quite sure what the purpose of this is but no one asked nor did I give my permission to do this.

Just to be safe as well as clear (I’m putting the old CYA adage into effect) anything I post on my blog originated by me or my husband is covered under U.S. Copyright laws and is not to be used, copied, or otherwise altered without our explicit permission.
I do not sell pharmaceuticals of any sort nor authorize my name, writing, or pictures to be used in association with such activities.
I’m going to be calm and not imagine the police showing up on my doorstep.
