    I know there are several threads about this plagiarist site already, but I hadn't seen this info posted yet and I didn't want it to get lost in the shuffle

    Via lookup.icann.org, here is the contact info for the acpeo site's host. Start sending those DMCA's, folks!!

      I think that's the registrar, not the host. But it might help too.

      (But probably not. I think registrars only deal with name disputes)

      With all plagiarism issues, if you have no joy with emails and hosts, I find it's best if you DMCA them.

      https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools … int_type=1

      Repeat the procedure if necessary. If you need more ammo so to speak go to the Google forums and search for more information/advice from other victims of online cheats and copiers.

      We authors are the copyright holders so HP can't get involved. Frustrating but this is our online writing world - like the wild west...with due respect to all the honest cowboys out there.

        I normally prefer to do that (file DMCA) with articles using Google ads and therefore monetizing on them. I think this websites' ads are copied from a template and don't earn (yet). Indeed, somebody here mentioned that clicking on the ad brings you back to the home page.

        With a DMCA takedown notice, Google will just de-index the articles not making them searchable by search engines, but people can still get traffic from direct links such as through social media.

        There is a website from Russia that has copied dozens of articles on pets from here and even though I filed a DMCA, they managed to put ads from other non Google companies and still monetize on it.

        I recently re-filed a DMCA because it managed to have Google ads again after 4-5 years. I guess they can be re-instituted after some time?

        In any case, I was told to report to the hosting company when possible (so to go to the jugular vein), since hosting companies have the power to actually remove the content. At least that's what I have seen done in the past.

        With this Russian website, it's unfortunate that the hosting website is also a sort of scam, not responding to anybody' requests.

        However in this particular case, if Hostinger for some reason gives a hard time, a DMCA is for sure next on my list!

      I checked over the week and it seems to be this British company called Hostinger International Ltd. Which is good because a British company would theoretically be more responsive to DMCA strikes.

      Have already highlighted this in one of the older threads, but as you can see, I'm having a really long one over there with someone.

      Anyway, instructions are here. https://www.hostinger.com/trademark-cop … fringement

        I'm not whether they are legally obliged, but because the issue of copyright is so muddled throughout the world, they'll take it down to be on the safe side.

    DMCA complaint email has been sent to Hostinger. No reply as of yet.

    In the meantime I have continued my campaign of leaving comments on "Gourmet Pro's" site calling him out as a thief and plagiarist.

    Sadly, the comments are set so they need to be moderated, which means no one but the infringer can actually see them, but I hope I'm at least annoying the crap out of the guy. The possibility keeps me entertained, at any rate.

    I am seriously considering stepping up my campaign to include insults against the infringer's hygiene and / or lineage, just to see if I get a reaction. ("HEY MAN, STOP TALKIN' SH*T ABOUT MY MOTHER!")  big_smile

    Keith, thanks for putting this out there for reference.  I’ll be submitting my letter(s) today.  I already sent a note directly to the gmail address included at top of all the plagiarized articles...letting him/her know that I and a good number of colleagues were filing DMCA complaints.  I also let the plagiarist know that there may be those among us who will pursue legal action if/when the DMCA complaints fail.  We’ll see what happens next.

          "Falsely charged" with what?

          With all due respect, I think it's pretty obvious that I'm not trying to draw traffic to that idiot's site.

          if anything, I've been one of the guys leading the charge against this jack-off.

            No, you're not doing anything wrong. I also did something similar in the last few days. Yesterday, a hubber falsely accused me of making that website famous and driving traffic to their website by sharing screenshots. smile

            So I was just telling you how that conversation ruined my day yesterday. I, too, am eager to pull that site out of the ground and throw it away.

    Posted some Easter eggs in my latest article about Heimdall. I noticed with a previous poem he lifted he didn't take the last photo, but managed to get the captions in which I called him out for his actions. A little of the same in the new article.
    Btw, does the legit site called Gournet Pro know this guy is using their title?I've dealt with another plagiarist that did this...after a while that site was shut down.

    Does anybody have any updates on Hostinger? I emailed them and they came back saying "unfortunately, we failed to locate any infringement content on the URL listed in your complaint." And they asked for further details, like where my IP address is, what device I am using and screen shots of the infringing material. I re-sent the info, but find it odd that they say they couldn't locate the content since the email they replied to had my messages below with clearly the violating URL visible and my original URL. Go figure!

    1. eugbug profile image94
      eugbugposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Probably because initially a human doesn't look at it and it goes through software that automatically tries to match the original and copied content. Just send them back an email telling them to check again because the copied content is plainly obvious. That usually works with Google and they presumably get a human to check.

      1. alexadry profile image95

    1. Miebakagh57 profile image68

      I think we all can count on hubpages for that. Though we had the copyright to all our contents, Hubpages should do something like querying any writer who wants to copy more than 5% of our writes on its sites.

  19. FatFreddysCat profile image95
    FatFreddysCatposted 2 years ago

    So how goes the war on acpeo, everyone?

    I have continued to stop by daily and leave snarky comments on the three articles he stole from me, even going so far as to bring his personal hygiene and lineage into question, but it's not as much fun when they're only visible to him and I'm getting no response.

    I have sent a total of three DMCA emails to Hostinger about each of my stolen articles, I got a response to one of them saying they're "investigating" but nothing about the other two.

    That said... I am NOT going to stop posting new stuff while this is going on. If we quit writing, then The Terrorists Win, as far as I'm concerned. Besides, an indie record label just sent me promos for their Spring release schedule to review and since they were nice enough to hook me up, I feel I owe it to them to turn my reviews out in a timely manner.

    Though I gotta say, I am seriously considering adding a line at the end of my next couple of articles saying something to the effect of "If you are reading this article on acpeo dot com or any other web site besides the HubPages Network, it is stolen!" ... just to see if acpeo guy adds it to his ripoff site with that bit attached... cuz it would be hilarious.

    Onward and upward!!

      All I received so far from Hostinger was that they were investigating. Yes, we must just keep writing. I am confident acpeo will be taken down eventually. I wrote one article about online theft and the use of scraper bots and mentioned at the end that if anyone was reading this article at acpeo or Gourmet Pro that it was stolen and they were one of the worst perpetrators.
      Yes, he stole it and posted on his site in its entirety!

I like it.                                       Now, I'm being inspired to write something at the beginning or end of my articles, like: if you reading this article on any other site other than hubpages, know that its stolen!                                        Seriously, when will hubpages do something to stop thefts copying our articles on they websites?
