Disregard my previous comment/question -- I just found some contact info
thanks to creative Googling.

Well this sucks.  There isn't useful whois data and I can't find any contact
information on the site.  Anyone see something that I'm missing at 3:43AM?

Someone alerted me to this site tonight where they copied about 1,000 words
straight from my web page.

http://www.industryplayer.com/licenceinfo.php?licid=014060

In the "license research report" section, everything up to the Newton
paragraph is plagiarized from my site.

There is a link at the bottom of the page but there's no explanation to
visitors about which facts came from which sites.  It's one thing to quote a
sentence or to set off a block paragraph, but blatantly copying 1,000 words
pisses me off so much.  They took some pictures as well which aren't mine,
but which I had explicit permission from their owners to use.

Also at the bottom, it says "researched by..." -- they call a simple Google
search and cut-and-paste session "research" these days?  That's pathetic.

I will try contacting the site owners with my complaint.  Hopefully it wil
get rectified like last time.
