Now that you have a new site design, perhaps you can now go back and redo some of your tutorials with your own original content. Stealing caption text verb**** from a competitor does not exactly reflect ethical business practices.

Example: The caption text in "Creating a POP email account" -

Original caption text: http://www.demodemo.com/tutorials_cpanel_xmail.html

Stolen caption text: http://www.democentre.com/Store/Cpan...ish/xmail.html

No, it certainly is not.

LayeredTech, their upstream provider, reacted quickly and properly to my DMCA a few weeks ago. They made DC take down the offending pages. However, I see the pages are now back online (cpanel xmail and zencart). Aside from a few token caption modifications, 95% of all the text remains unchanged and still stolen from DemoDemo product.

Shameless, unabashed and blatant theft. Embarrassing that any "company" would sink to such levels.

So easy to charge low prices when you can just steal others' work instead of paying for original work.

So true... and you end up with who knows how many end users utilising a virtually stolen product. That's your potential customers, who should have paid you.

Looks like you are not the only one that Democentre/VividWebhosting is "borrowing" text from Vito.

Absolutely shameful behavior. And they are arrogant about it too. When I challenged them in their WHT sales thread about the stolen text, she replied:

Quote:
I apologies if someone we out source to has a little bit of a problem creating the content but to be honest I couldn’t care less! After all they only get compared to yours which if we are honest and as this IS MY thread, are no better just dearer!
Wonderful defense, and a brilliant demonstration of their set of business ethics. Blatant in-your-face thievery.

(It goes without saying that WHT [in true WHT fashion] tossed the thread, which is why I saved the page to my hard drive first)

Ahhh. Good old WHT. They always let the scum rise to the top.
Why leave evidence of this sleazy behavior. Good to see some things never change.

I usually go after any thief who I find stealing from me, but this one is tops on my list. They have zero ethics and zero imagination in coming up with their own products.

Example (just one of many):

A few weeks ago, I announced the launch of DemoDemo's . Order Form Tour. Within hours, they had a cheap imitation on their site.

Unbelievable.

Oh, and BTW, Holly, if you feel I have posting libelous statements against you, then please feel free to take me to court. I welcome the opportunity to bury you in a court of law.

I'm suprised they haven't stolen talking faq yet Vito.
Oh wait, they couldn't do that because it would require a financial investment.
I'm sure they prefer to steal ideas that don't cost them anything.
