I hadn’t heard of either of these terms until this morning, when I was doing a bit of research into something that I have noticed becoming more common recently.

I’m talking about whole pages reposted without the owner’s knowledge. This article from Between Naps on the Porch explains it all much better than I could and has lots of useful links.
