What To Do When Someone Copies Your Stuff - with Tracey Mylecharane

Today I am joined by Tracey from TM Solicitor. Tracey is a business lawyer and will share her insights on dealing with the different types of copycats that we may encounter in our business life. 

There's been a bit of discussion online about it lately. Still, it's something that I think we all, at one point in our business life where we have somebody who either is copying our stuff, plagiarising it, or potentially even impersonating us.

I did have one who set up an account in my name using my photo pretending, which was the one that is probably the highest level of copycat there is. They were then sending all of my contacts connection requests.

I have no idea who it was to this day. But I had a few people help me out. We all reported the account, and it was shut down, luckily. But I don't know how I would have found out if someone else hadn't told me about it because it was literally that they had a connection request from me, and they thought it was strange.

Luckily, I was already connected to her, and she knows me quite well. I had a look and realised that it was another account pretending to be me. So yes, this happens all the time. It's scary!
