I don't know if we have to feel proud or simply furious. I never though in my lifetime I would see that kind of ripping. How on earth did you find the page ? They even changed the copyright. Poor guys they doesn't even know how to steal, their design capabilities must be from zero to minus 100.

Then people asks why we protected the addresses. I remember people where very pushing on this issue. Maybe we can find some clue on that thread. I didn't understand the need to know the address but now I am getting an indea.

will, I have my techniques ;) well, actually I look at the stats regularly and since they did not bother to change the links some people came from their page.

if they ever put their email address on that website I will suggest them to start a contest for their own design. :)

We'd have to get into contact with their ISP and file a complaint, the site should be taken down then

thanx pentool, but the problem is not the .cx, ath.cx is the problem that is using the subdomain for that site to be hosted in a dynamic ip site we already contacted and are waiting for their actions.

This has happened to me at least five times before with previous versions of Penguinpedia. Usually the hosting provider is very good about shutting down sites that steal content.

Anyways, Good Luck!

Wow....... I honestly can't believe the nerve - nor the blatant stupidity since they even left links to the contest threads! I had to even check the Staff link to make sure that they didn't rip our pics/bios to use for themselves as well.

Hope that you can make some progress into getting to the bottom of this. let me know if I can help :)

p.s. Will - I think that this was the post that you were referring to, but don't really think that it means much of anything . could be wrong though: http://www.designcon...read.php?t=2368

Good to see that the isp took action,
is this site's design copyrighted?
You may say it is copyrighted, but that
doesn't mean much on the web as
everyone just puts like copyright 2005 etc
and thinks that means the work is copyrighted...

That sounded like it was handled great ;) I've never personally had work stolen from me, although I always hate to see it happening to people.
