    Thanks Jusu.. I'm glad too that I didn't need to use them..

    Thanks Colin.. I wouldnt be surprised to see if his works in the source all has the line "saved from www.somewebsite.com" and seriously, he is a terrible ripper who doesn't wipe his mouth after stealing food..

    Now I really wish that ripperhunting is back online, sadly its down until late 2007..

    I feel much better after a night, its Chinese New Year and a good school break, I shouldnt let this get to me..

    Thanks Tiono(w@rtistic), thanks for all the help So what do I have to do next?

    FX, I wouldnt mind if you want to play Mr Westfall again

    One thing I personally do against rippers is placing "morse-pixels" all over my websites. Basically I build the string "copyright by wischnewski.us" in morse-code [one dot = one pixel, one line = 2 pixels] and hide it somewhere in the image, adjusting the color to be just a few levels above the usual color (e.g. if the original image, or part of it, is colored in #000000 I'd choose #000015 for my copyright notice).
    That makes it barely visible without zooming inside, and even if my images are altered via hue/saturation adjustments, it still exists without becoming more visible.

    Once I found someone who actually ripped one of my personal websites to turn it into a "professionals portfolio" - when I found that out, I created a special html-page with screenshots of the copyright notice on the "desginers" website, and sent this link to all of his customers. Several days later, his layout had changed, and when I visited again after 2 month it was comlpetely gone... Guess his customers didn't like the idea of having paid for [probably] ripped websites themselves.

    send the email you've sent to me to resellerpanel.com they run the show of those 3 hosting company's. include also the mail records from your first contact to the last one. also its maybe good to mention that he ripped slicemydesign.com too or maybe verify first at slicemydesign.com if they gave permission or not.

    Imitation is the sincerest flattery.
    -Mohandas Gandhi

    I would be angry too, but you are so talented you have to expect this to happen. There are all kinds of creeps out there, but don't let it raise your blood pressure, just take it as a compliment.

    reflect, I guess we have to agree to disagree here.. Perhaps imitation is the sincerest flattery but imitation is imitation, not theft, imitation means you try to emulate, theft is you just take whatever people do and claim it your own..

    thanks for the compliment.. but i'm not talented..
