Stolen content

I was just looking through my log files for the week and noticed a ton of hits from a strange web site. Looking further…this fool stole not only content from my site, but copied most of the head section of my index page including a java script call from my script folder.
It took about 20 seconds to rewrite the stolen script into a 0 second redirect to my site.
I emailed the idiot and told him to remove the content but in the mean time I get ALL of his traffic:)

LOL... Nice! (But at that point, why bother emailing him at all? hehehe ;) )

Another side bonus I just noticed with the redirect. Google has a cache of the whole page and it calls the same script. Wham...no Google cache it just redirects to me straight away.

Might be a problem in the long run, but for now I am enjoying all the extra traffic and sales.

After enjoying the Holiday sales rush you could then redirect to a deviate porn site.

Good Work Conard.

Seems to me this might be a simple thing to put in all pages as a precaution against less than knowledgable theives.

Is it possible to write a simple Javascript that checks the location, and, if not yoursite.com, automatically redirects to yoursite.com? (Javascript is not my strongpoint.)

Won't stop everybody but might catch a few. Just a thought.
