My company's website was plagiarized: what next?

Anonymous writes "After a recent design revamp, I discovered that my company's website (www.ripstyles.com) has had a large portion of its content "ripped off." After digging through this other site (I am purposefully leaving out the URL) I have discovered that they have taken quite a bit of content from multiple other websites besides my own. A few calls and emails have been disregarded on their part ("Sorry....my boss is out sick...), and I'm trying to avoid legal action for as long as possible. It seems inevitable though, and I have to ask: do I owe it to the other companies to show them that their content has been plagiarized, or is it their own problem? If so, should I take this on alone? What would you Slashdot readers do in this situation?"

Why why why do people keep asking questions like this on /.??? GET A LAWYER NOW! They've ignored your polite attempts to fix the problem, now it's time for legal action. Nope sorry you can't avoid it if they won't cooperate.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
