I use Technorati to check who is linking to me and a few days ago I discovered something that I am getting quite alarmed about. Someone has apparently created a whole network of "psuedo-blogs" and are copying content from a wide variety of food blogs, including mine. They summarize what your post is about in a kind of weird way, and then give a link, (which does go to your blog) but the link is credited to Google Blog Search. It looks like the purpose is to get people to click on other links which are google search ads, but I can't find any contact information anywhere.
Here are some examples of their "blogs"

There are at least 10 of these "psuedo blogs" with my content and maybe more. There are lots and lots of other blogs I recognize too who are also having their content used this way. In fact, in the short time I spent looking through their "blogs" I bet I saw 50 blogs that I recognized.
Advice? What can we do about this?
