Hello,
In order to archive your content, so that you have proof that the original content is yours in case of someone copying your content without permission, does anybody know a good website that does that? Or google etc, do they have such a service?

Note that I want not only home page but articles archived as well...

In general once you publish content online, it will get stolen... it's the nature of the beast and something you have to live with. If you don't want someone to reuse your content, the only thing you can do is not publish it in the first place.

Sure you can state that some content is copyrighted, that there are penalties for improper use etc etc... but ultimately nobody will take a blind bit of notice about that. 99% of content stealing is done by bots anyway.

So as to your question, I don't see any reason why you would archive content anywhere except on your own site.

If you want to sue for copyright infringement, you'll need to talk to a lawyer. You should probably go to yours and talk about your options. One method is to send a sealed envelope with the content inside in the post to yourself, the timestamp proving you were the original content owner.

I actually had heard about that before, but not sure if it has any legal value...Regardless, there must be a somewhere on the web that provides such a service, instead of using sealed envelope, you can just send them your article on that date for archive etc...

once you put your article on web any one can access it and steal it. All you can do is request the thieves to remove them politely. There is not use in making enemies online. if all attempts fail you have to send DMCA notices n ask help from lawyer (this option is expensive :( )

DMCA notices

Or the local equivalent. The world doesn't equal the US, you know.
