  • Someone created a blatant ripoff of my site...

    I run FordvsChevy.com, and have been running it for over two years now. I just found out that there's another site, that's a very blatant rip of my own, including parts that were directly cut and pasted off of my own pages.

    Mine: www.fordvschevy.com
    Ripoff: www.fordorchevy.com

    Even the name incredibly similar.

    Is there anything I can do about this from a legal standpoint, or am I just gonna have to deal with the imposter? Thanks in advance...

      If you can prove the content was yours original, you can get an attorney to draft a letter to them (cc: their webhosting company) asking that the copyrighted materail be removed from the site immediately or the site be shut down.

        I think the 2nd design is stronger overall too, but as a site it's still got a long way to go, IE those under construction sections, lots of rough edges.

        It's clearly a rip off of the original site, however.

        Look at the About Us sections on both sites.

        It's pretty disgraceful.

        I wish www.fordvschevy.com the best of luck.

          doesnt look like a ripoff to me
          about domain name, yeah, they are indeed very similar, so what?
          www.infopop.com is also similar to www.infopoop.com , nevertheless they point to completely different IP's

              Looks like they are down. Are they changing their layout ?
              Well, there it is.
