Stolen Testimonials Content is now not good enough for them? Kenton msg:920351 1:23 am on Oct 10, 2005 (gmt 0) WOW!
I've just been doing some tracking down of content theft from our site, when I came across a site that stole 5 of our testimonials.
They only have 5 testimonials and they're all ours.
Worse still, they kept the names of our clients!
AND the way back machine shows them having this content since 01 July 2004 .... they obviously can't get their own favorable testimonials!
Sory for the rant ... just needed to get this off my chest.

They probably assumed that you had made up the testimonials yourself. Write them and tell them how amusing it is that you have so many overlapping clients who gave your service exactly the same compliment. Be sure to criticize your clients' lack of creativity in being unable to come up with something new.
Or, you know, send the old
DMCA notices [ webmasterworld.com] out.. BigDave msg:920353 3:41 pm on Oct 11, 2005 (gmt 0)
I wouldn't recommend sending out the DMCA notices, because you are then claiming copyright ownership where you do not own the copyright. The copyright belongs to those who wrote the testimonial.
