I searched for a long phrase from my site recently and was surprised to see it come up verbatim, but on another site. My entire site of 10,000 pages has been copied by somebody hosting it at some Czech hosting service. At the top is a frame saying "Anonym Agent" with Cookies, Scriptu, reklam, Tento formulae with checked boxes next to them! So what the heck is going on? Someone simply out to hurt my site? Or is it just a cheap, amateurish way to try to promote THEIR stuff? Will contacting the host (and reporting the 75+ digit URL) help? How concerned should i be and what can i do about it. The site copy was listed in Google's supplemental index with no links pointing to it. MY REAL site is a couple years old and well-linked to. Can anyone help?

There's hope.

Take a look through these threads as they might give you some good pointers.
