stealing stories

Anyone have any suggestions about how to deal with someone re-posting stories on another site and not giving credit to the author?

This is a frequent occurrence unfortunately. If the site is a reputable one, a message to the owners will often get the plagiarised story taken down. It's very annoying that people try to take credit for your imagination and hard work, although perhaps you can take it as a compliment too - that your work was that good.
Good luck getting the proper acknowledgement.

Yes (on anyone having a suggestion how to deal with reposting), don't post your stories to a free-use site. For anyone who cares, you've established them as of no legal value. It's really not worth the frustrating effort to prevent this if you've posted the story to a site like Literotica. Writing is a renewable resource. You'd better spend your time writing other stories and not ventilating--and, if you want to protect them and possibly make money off them yourself, choose a different way of publishing them.

help from friends

My editor, Archangel, was my knight in shining armor. He contacted literotica who verified he was on the right track of what to do, and then he contacted the other website who took down my stories. There are other authors from lit whose stories have been posted there under the same name as the person who took mine. It's annoying. But at least they took care of the problem for nw.

Be glad someone heard your writing voice, who cares who gets credit, you know

But what is the guarantee they just won't repost it after you stop looking it up? That's the risk if you're going to publish on public sites like Literotica where anyone and everyone can just copy&paste your stories to enrich their own sites {through advertising products and porn clips}. I would guess that there's no preventing this from happening other than to take your stories down here after having written the other site to remove them.

I know AskJolene is one that has ALL my stories - even the ones I have already taken down. They're based in The Netherlands. I need to write them to remove them. Some of the stories are credited to me, most of them are not.
