Why do I need this plugin?
It has become common practice to add a copyright notice at end of articles in your full text atom or RSS feeds, to discourage content theft and feed scrapping sites from republishing your copyrighted content. This plugin inserts a simple copyright notice, and the link will pingback when the feed is republished elsewhere. It will also help search engines determine that your article and blog is the original source.
Can I do this without a plugin?
Most plugins are hacks to the wordpress code. If you are not comfortable editing the wordpress core files , then this wordpress plugin is the simplest solution for you.
