    * e-center.gr and vortechhosting.com

    One of our customers pointed out site that had copied our site
    Our site: http://vortechhosting.com
    copied site: http://e-center.gr
    designed by: http://www.webrhinostudios.com/portfolio/webdesign/

    We E-Mailed venturesonline.com about the site over 24 hours ago and seem to be getting the run around about the site being taken down. As you can see it is hosted by them:
    http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/whois.ch?ip=!NET-216-7-160-0-1&server=whois.arin.net

    Wanted to see what else can be done about it, I have not tried calling VO as of yet. I guess that would have to be the next step. Any other ideas?

    Just in case, you might want to go ahead and take screenshots of each of your sites, and whatever else you might think you need as evidence.

    Like I said, just in case.
    Take care,

    Geez.... they didn't even take your logo/symbol out of the plan box background, and several other images are completely unchanged. Definitely capture some screenshots for the record. This is a pretty obvious rip.

    When you contracted (assuming you did) WebRhinoStudios to to the work for you, in the initial contract or a seperate one, did it state that you have the right to copyright it? Did you?

    If you did then go ahead and take legal action, starting with a removal notice.

    Hi Vortech,

    It's a blatant rip indeed, and I am also currently being given the runaround - see thread at http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...hreadid=261317

    The domain is in Greece; if you need to send them an email in Greek just send me the English version and I will translate it for you.

    The only contact info I could find from the WHOIS at http://www.gr is this:

    Brad, you seem to get all the luck with people copying your sites... and all the Adwords fun too. What do you do to attract this?

    Matt, LoL

    Copying sites, AD word issues, ex-works that try and steel everything ( I want say any names here but everyone knows who I am talking about here, thank god for courts ).


    You name it and it seems to happen to me..

    But I can take the bad with the good.. hehe
