    My hub(5 Ways to Embarrass Yourself at a Job Interview) was copied word for word for this winning website: http://www.squibcrib.com/humanresources.html.

    As far as I can tell, the entire page is nothing but stolen content which is classy, for certain.  I've sent the editor an e-mail asking for the content to either be removed or modified to include only a small portion of the article, my name, and a link to the original webpage.

    A quick domain search showed he registered with godaddy, who I believed has a pretty stringent "no copyrighted material" rule.  Has anyone had any real luck getting stolen content taken care of in the past?

    I file Notice of Infringement statements regularly, and they do get honored.  I've only had to escalate to filing with the ISP a handful of times, but it usually never goes beyond contacting the admin for the site.

    Yes, I've filed a few and they've been actioned.

    By the way, has it occurred to you that by posting a hyperlink to his site, you're doing him a favour?

    My friend, it happens to the best of us - in the end I just got irritated and posted:

    It's on my page. Took me hours to find all that stuff out.
