It's been brought to my attention that my website is being used with a .co.cc extention and framed. A little research has found that they offer a 'free' .co.cc domain name to anyone and they've 'given' one to my website. Who has done this and why? What is the potential for damage to me and my website?

Hmmmm . . . beyond the legal hassle . . what about employing a frame breaking script or sniffing for their IP address and delivering something funny when they attempt to load your website?
It might be a PITA to attempt to enforce your rights in some ccTLD countries. However, if there's money (ads, etc) being made which is coming from a source outside the ccTLD country you might have a way to back them off.
Something new to deal with everyday, eh? Yuck. ;-/

I'm not technically savvy enough to do that... maybe you can suggest something.
There are no ads they are adding and my website appears completely as normal, except it's through their own domain (which is my domain name with the .co.cc extension). Looking at the source code, you can't see any of my website source on their domain, so I'm hoping this is pretty much risk free?) Honestly, I can't see why they would be doing this.
