    As you can see that's a 5 month old article. Stop being a sheep and get back to work. :banana:

    Okay well I did misread the article date. :) But anyways, if you registered a domain with a copyrighted term in it you should have expected this. It's not hard to be original.

    That would be a step in the wrong direction. Can you imagine your competition knocking out your pages that easy? It would be a nightmare.

    Man, I honestly don't think you've read the article or it just didn't resonate with you. The quote:
    "Just think of all of the affiliate sites that could be immediately taken off line because some company claims the websites are "confusingly similar" or files some other grey area complaint, knowing they don't need to actually make a case, just file a complaint. THINK OF THE LOST PPC REVENUES when your landing page goes offline but you don't know it!"

    The way my landing pages work are off product theme. Color, font, logo etc. We're not talking domain names here (and if we were, I'd be hard-pressed to find 1 affiliate marketer who hasn't used a copyrighted term in their domain name. This is AFF Marketing 101), we're talking about similarities. Landing pages, at least the good ones, are meant to look authoritative i.e. similar, at least to me anyway. I don't know about the rest of you, but this shit is ruthless.

    Who cares people will always try to stop what you do regardless. Cause the way they see it your taking their revenue. Get another method and move on. That is sort of the point right.
