I have a pesky competitor who has no ideas of his own. Years ago he stole my terms of service page verbatim and was so daft that he left my postal contact info on his site.
Since then, he has continued to steal my site piece meal and one bit at a time.
Two years ago he went way over the line and shamelessly stole my entire site concept, appearance and I mean everything but the kitchen sink. It was a clear, malicious attempt at plagiarizing my site as far as he could.
Get ready for a laugh (names changed to reflect the idiocy of the perp):
"Any person who knowingly materially misrepresents [17 U.S.C. Section 512(f) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act] that material or activity on the web site www.dopey-jerk.com is infringing shall be liable for any damages, including costs, loss of income, and attorneys’ fees, incurred by Dopey Products, LLC, who would be injured by such misrepresentation, as the result of our service provider relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing."
I'd love to see that hold up in a court of law.
What are your thoughts?
