    How can I stop our company website from getting ripped consistantly? I work for an engineering and IT staffing firm, and these scammer people keep ripping the site, filling it with eroneous job postings, and advertising on CL. They are not hacking the site and changing ours, they are copying the site and putting it up on their own domain with all the fake job ads. Its a real pain, and people are complaining about us to the BBB. What can we do? this is the 3rd or 4th time this year this has happened, we always get the site shut down, then it pops back up. he wasn't smart enough to register this one privatley. if you go to the domain listed, that is the fake scam site. What can we do?

    Well, a couple options for you really. None of them are sure fire.

    #1 is legal action, file a suit, send a summons to him, and a summons to his host requesting them to forward it.

    #2 if that's not a viable option, obfuscate the code. Use rolling image references where a PHP script fetches the images, and outputs them, this way they cannot rip images of the site, etc.

    However, that's also not a sure fire method because it is defeat-able if someone is persistent (although most aren't), they also already have a copy of the site stored.

    The other less effective answer would be to try and footprint their CL postings, setup a Google alert for it, and notify there host every time one gets posted.

    Not much help, but it's a few ideas.
