Help, my site is being copied by someone else (9 posts)

    I run http://www.easymusiccenter.com

    Through Google alerts, I found this site:
    http://www.davecrate.com/

    Aside from the sticky post at the top, this site has been copying my posts for almost a month now.

    First, how is he doing this? The posts are coming up as his own on his site, so it doesn't seem to be a simple RSS feed.

    Next, how can I get him to stop? The only way to contact is to leave a comment, which I haven't yet. Trying to gather info before I do anything.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    There might be something listed there that will be helpful. I saw an report abuse link listed there.
