    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    Ref. JOHNS459233GM9GY I am currently resident in Australia for the greater part of the year. I am planning to move back to the UK permanently this year. In 2008 I returned my paper driving licence as my UK address had changed and on speaking with your department, and telling them that I lived mainly in Australia, I was advised that my licence would be held by you until I returned to live permanently in the UK. I will be 70 in September, as your records show, and would like advice as to what I should do at this point. Thank you.
