Getting rid of website squatters using frames

Recently, we did a linkcheck for one of our website on a tutorials directory and found there were more then 20 articles from our website listed there.

Further research revealed, they were giving a direct link to our website like digg, but these links open in frames.
Our website opened in bottom frame, they have advertisements on top frame and our content is displayed like there websites content.

(something similar appears when you run a search on google images)

How can we technically avoid this problem ?

Here's an old Java solution that will stop many (NOT ALL).
Of course the visitors browser must have Java ON.

Add the following to the each individual page's header:

<script language=javascript type = "text/javascript">
<!-- Hide script from old browsers
if (top.location == self.location)
top.location.href = "http://www.example.com/yourpage.htm"
// End hiding script -->
