I run a bunch of blogs and make some fairly decent loot from them. My little brother saw my continued success with them and decided he wanted to try it. So I bought a domain, threw it up on my host and installed wordpress for him. He didn't do anything with the site for awhile, so I didn't bother checking on his progress. That was probably my first mistake. So this morning I check my email and get a surprise. A guy wrote me and accused me of stealing stuff off his site and publishing it on mine. He went on to say that I should have 'taken care of the whois info' before I stole other peoples work. (I didn't bother registering via proxy). I quickly checked my brother's domain and he had actually snatched word for word content off this dude's website. No attempt to hide or rewrite it, just a plain copy & paste. He also used my Digg & Stumble account to help get the blog indexed faster. The content in question is a simple blog entry along with a small php tool to aid people in recovering lost passwords. My brother downloaded his script (386k or so) and uploaded it to my server to be shared. No one actually downloaded it though. I confront my brother, he admits to it, I kick him in the ass (hard) and delete the entire domain, undigg the site and delete the Stumble comments. My question/concern is that this guy has a right to be pissed about his shit getting stolen and I don't blame him. He does however state that he plans on suing me for damages. He lives in the UK I think. Any suggestions/comments?
