Website theft
This is so blatant:

Compare:

http://www.louiespropainting.com/index.html

to:

www.ecopainting.ca

I called the owner, no luck.
I called the host/designer nothing.

I contacted HostGator, their host, and they say there is nothing they can do
without a DMCA complaint.
Amazing how every host including Microsoft support team is able to eliminate
blatant website theft but Hostgator needs the whole legal procedure.

Again compare :
http://www.louiespropainting.com/index.html
to:
www.ecopainting.ca

It's so obvious, it's funny.
Even with the Wayback Machine archives available, they still host a cheat!

Yep there is a big similarity there in the word for word paragraphs.
I could not get the maine site to open anything other than the home page and color selector.

George,

Hire an attorney. I did when it happened to me. It cost me up front, but the offender wound up sending me a check that more than covered the attorney's fees, and I still get a check twice a year.

Well, I guess I won't copy your website when I get mine going.

Dang, I liked that thing too.

Nathan 08-14-2007 04:18 PM

So what happened? Any updates?

It looks like the offending (offensive) site is down.
Something must have worked.

Nathan 08-14-2007 08:19 PM

OK, wasn't sure if you knew what happened or not. Glad it worked out.

I heard that Google doesn't like duplicatte content
and spiders can't know who the offender is.

Also in the non local results, we are all competing for Google Real estate

i discovered that after launching the mother ship www.vancouversbestpainters.com saturated with content and a stranglehold on first for over two yrs now with 3 separate searches.....but then we followed it up with www.whistlersbestpainters.com and www.torontosbestpainters.com duplicating the content...

google has ignored toronto and whistler...even though they're great looking sites and legitimately producing huge coin yearly..due to the duplicity of the content...

i almost feel lucky that the mothership hasnt been spanked out of the generics..

we know what we have to work on though

Well, Louie's a handsome devil, isn't he?
What is the big deal?

Looks like pretty much straight forward generic websites to me...

Spend the BIG bucks on a whiz bang uber full color glossy black and white light show with licensed metal soundtrack then you got something to complain about that may get results for you.

When you are checking for plagarists, check pages other than your home page. I did so today, and found 17 sites using my materials.
