Apologies if this is an inappropriate topic for the forum though I don't know where else to seek advice. Any pointing in the right direction would be appreciated :-)
When I decided to move my blog over from Blogger to a self-hosted WordPress site one of the first things I considered was my domain name. My blogger site is 'thepaintedhive.blogspot.com' so I thought 'thepaintedhive.com' would be perfect. I soon discovered this name had been taken by an apparent 'squatter' who was generating links on their site derived from content on my blog. I found this incredibly frustrating, bordering on plagerism, though is it illegal and does anyone know if there are steps I can take to get them shut down? Or is it just plain bad luck for me?
Again, apologies if I've posted this in the wrong forum. Any advice much appreciated.
