The content-thieves from CarBuzz.com are trying to hide their criminal activities in China. They went quite far to do so by locking out all Chinese IP’s. CarBuzz.com is therefore no longer visible in the whole of China (except with a VPN 哈哈哈). I guess CarBuzz’ advertisers don’t like that very much. They will even like less what will happen next, but I don’t say what that is…
Our first story on CarBuzz.com stealing our content has caused a lot of stir. It is all over Facebook and Bertel from TheTruthAboutCars.com did a fine article on CarBuzz’ thievery as well. Good, we are getting started. We already found some of the other websites where Carbuzz.com stole content from. If you know more, please let us know in the comments or via our contact-form. More soon later…

The American car news website CarBuzz.com systematically steals my content for their China-tag. CarBuzz.com steals my pictures, my information, but does not link back to me. This has been going on for more than half a year now. I have been in touch with CarBuzz.com. They promised me three times to make things better and link back to me. After each promise they did so for a short while, but then they ‘forgot’ it again.
When I checked their website last week I found yet another five articles, stolen from this website, without any link back. What made me really angry was that they even stole an article with my very own pictures. I again sent CarBuzz.com an email but didn’t get any reply. I then send CarBuzz.com one email more but still no reply.
I have always been very polite, I said ‘please’, but all to no avail. I believe CarBuzz’ thievery has crossed a line and therefore this rather unusual article. See below for the list of stolen articles and the names of the editor-in-thieves who did the ‘work’.
