    Basically he has a website, and my design is similar but not exactly the same, his is completely custom coded, mine is wordpress. There are similaritys but no way has it been copyied like he is suggested.

    He is threatening with a dcma takedown notice, can this be done?

    take down is not possible and you should do reverse to him and send an message to your wordpress theme developer and tell he has violated copyrights.

    Hes jealous because im out ranking him, but he is doing alot better than me in terms of sales, the guy is a millionaire, I am making about 3-5 sales on that site a day and hes stressing me lol. Shouldn't he be worrying about where he is going on holiday next instead of hassling lil old me o.0

    I'm not expert on this but if you didn't copy his site then ignore his requests and block his calls, you have nothing to worry about :) Jealousy some people can not deal with ;)

    He 's just trying to scare you, don't bite into it. And btw, I don't know any millionaires who spend their time threatening competitor sites that make 2-5 sales ;)

    Some people are such a power trip that money isn't even a factor to them.
    They are never happy nor satisfied with what they have, they are too worried about what they don't have.

    Like someone else said, turn this around on him, and threaten him back.

    This seems like the guy is an archetypal plonker no less, maybe he will get the message if you send him a really polite friendly email, asking him to have intercourse with himself!

    You could be ribald and translate the above for him by adding - Go Fvck Yourself!:eek:

    If you didn't actually copy anything at all then you've got absolutely nothing to worry about ;)
