Copyright Infringement

I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.. but not in this case.

While reviewing my site logs, I found a hit from another website that was an exact copy of my txt2day.com website. I mean exact.. the wording, the layout, the images, everything. IN fact, his FAQ page even had my site’s name in it!

anyway.. I sent off the usual cease and desist letter, and this is what I got back:

Please, provide the proper proof that the website is indeed yours. I require the sales reciepts, payroll for the coders you hired to create the site, proper copyright documents showing you have file the proper copyrights to the concept of creatting a text messaging script. I have bought the script from a user and would like to find out if they have cheated me, but without the proper proof I will take it that your copying thier work and have indeed tring to harass me to not use thier script and will follow up with proper legal action’s. You are annoying me with the emails. Please, provide all contact details to me or I will have a legal right to follow up with a lawsuit against you.

Have a nice day.

Name Removed

Payment details? sales receipts? copyright documents? None of these things exist for any website, let alone are required by law.

The law is simple.. I made it first, and I can prove that.. he copied the exact wording. Anyway, him and his laywer will be hearing from my attorney first thing in the morning. I don’t have time for this immature crap.
