The owners of this site has stolen my site and a bunch of others that I know about today. Besides sending a take down notice is there anything else that can be done.

If you're in the US, then no, not to my knowledge. This happens to me about twice a year.

You can try reporting it to their hosting company, but other than that this is a civil offense. If a letter from an attorney doesn't scare them, your only real recourse is a lawsuit.

The really crappy thing about a lawsuit is, they almost always go to the person that's able to spend the most money.
