    I manage a website for a friend who runs a small business. I rarely have to do anything with the site, but tonight I thought I'd take a quick glance through the logs and just see if there was anything odd like hacking attempts or whatnot.

    And I found several GET requests for images, but not from my pages. Then I realised it was hotlinking.

    So I looked it up, and whadya know, my content has been scraped and reused. This site has a bunch of pages of content that's totally unrelated to it's main theme, seemingly just to increase it's footprint and pick up some traffic. I understand that, this is BHW after all.

    But the firm who did it? IT'S A FRICKIN' LAW FIRM!

    LOL!

    I would think it's the guy they hired.
