    I don't think is a problem as long as you don't copy and paste their article. There are tons website copying fiverr out there.

    If it is fiverr, then I wouldn't worry since a lawyer probably isn't going to do much for $5 :p

    When they realize they can't do anything to stop you then you should offer them to buy your website for a nice price :p

    You are going to be linking with a CPA to their website and they asked you to stop?

    Good luck getting paid.

    I don't think there is anything he can do anything but place a filter on the referrals.
    Wouldn't your customers start to complain if your CPA offer leads to gay fetish pron for instance?

    He would have to think of that option first though so I would probably try to create an option for myself to check if visitors from your site actually make it to his.
    As long as they do: Rock on. :D

    Legally, if they want to... they can take you to court and make you remove the link.

    If they can prove it is affecting their sales or reputation.

    Had a similar problem with startup artists complaining I was copying their music.

    I found the following e-mail to effectively calm them down:
    But now I just changed the e-mail address and setup an autoresponder with CPA offer. It's been doing really good:

    I wouldnt stress about it dude.. from their tone in the email it's obvious that they are just trying their luck to hopefully get u to take down the site..... If they where going the legal route the tone would not be so soft

    they will have the network ban you that you are doing the cpa through. that means you will not get paid. they will not pay the network for leads coming from you using this site and will probably ask that you not be allowed to run their campaign in any fashion.
