    * **********.com -- Copyright Infringement

    Well, he's at it again folks.

    The young fella at **********.com has decided to rip the design (and most content, for that matter) from HostNine.

    Rip off: http://www.**********.com
    Real Thing: http://www.hostnine.com

    See previous violations: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=751073

    It's embarassing, the lengths some people will go to in order to avoid having to invest funds in their business.

    I saw that site on another forum the other day. I thought it was quite a nice design, but unfortunately it has been ripped.

    I must agree, it's quite embarrassing. It just gives them a bad image, and will deflect a lot of customers.

    Not very smart... HostNine isn't particularly underground.

    He promptly took the site down when presented with a Cease & Decist notice explaining what would happen if he didn't
