Shh, don't let the secret out of the bag.
And Jill was invented by a Sudanese* con artist with Photoshop and a vivid imagination, right?

I talked to the guy over an hour ago about removing the content he stole from me, and he said he'd have it off in 5 minutes. That hasn't happened.

I liked his link popularity article (well, not his). Even used the same example about "Bob's Pizza". Amazing, just amazing.

Best way to stop someone from trying to get ahead by stealing copy is to get their site off google - kinda hard to call yourself an SEO if you've been banned (though there are bozos out there who are doing it...)

The offender just sent me and e-mail telling me he had removed the copyrighted material he stole from me, but included a link in his e-mail to a page that still has copy I've written on it. He also hasn't removed all of Jill's content yet, because I don't think he can even find it all. Basically, the sites need to come down because they have no original content as far as I can see.
He now thinks that I'm a jerk because I've contacted every business I've been able to figure out has copy on his web site. Sometimes thieves can get really defensive.

I would have done that too!
I'm a nice, easy going person most of the time, but self rightous criminals push my "Crown Prosecutor" button. That's like a D.A. for my US friends. I've always been more of a "put bad guys in jail" type than an "axe murderers need love too" type.
If I had gone into public practice, I very likely would have worked for the Crown making people like this have "interesting experiences" for a living.
If you screw up and get caught, but are truly sorry, fess up and try to make it right, I'm inclined towards lieniency - but act like you are ENTITLED to rip people off and I tend to turn into the "hanging judge".
And fixing things after the fact because you had to doesn't count. A forced apology isn't one. Cleaning up your mess doesn't change the fact that you made one in the first place.
That's great. Chock one up for the good guys

Go get 'em, . Don't take any of his

On it. Here's the response. I'm working on some well documented proof. Jill & others being ripped off, send any examples you have my way and I'll pass them along.
Maybe it's time to contact his host... the sites should be shut down.
Copyright Violator on your server
If you can send me some kind of proof (other than this stuff beeing on other sites) that this material is copyrighted like a copyright certificate or something of the sort I will gladly suspend this account until the copyrighted material is removed. I can't go by the material just beeing on two sites because it's a matter of who had it there first. Sorry
