Angry Stealing web pages

Forgive me moderators for not posting in the best area, but I wanted to give it as much exposure as possible. I'm really peeved at someone cloning a page from my (audio) website with probable intent to modify and use it as a basis for their own.

http://www.smellydan.f2s.com/rum1.htm is a clone of my site: http://www.vikash.info/audio/

Some of us put a lot of time and effort into this stuff, I and it disgusts me when I see stuff like this. The culprit so far has only changed the copyright to his name.

So Daniel Rummary, are you a member of this forum...

I'd direct your ire toward his ISP- it's a clear copyright infringement. A letter to them ought to get his account terminated.

SY's advice is spot on. They appear to be a reasonably professional host, so I would expect they would respond to a politely worded email indicating the situation. The infringement is quite blatant, e.g. he still has numerous references to your name!

"Smelly Dan" covers the load allright !

What puzzles me is that even the email adress on the contact page is identical ?

Sorry to hear about this Vikash.

Its a blatent rip and its looking like he's taking credit for all the projects on your site, which is the biggest offender IMO. Just taking the page layout wouldn't have been so bad but claiming others intellectual property is low.

He seems to be a member at:

http://forums.lavausergroup.org/index.php

So perhaps he has an e-mail in his profile there?
