Silicon.com Neuters Web Copycat
 

Advertisement

In a March 9, 2004, story, Silicon.com exposed a website, 'Car or Car,' that was ripping off the design, content, and IP of the website, Car Enthusiast, owned by Shane O'Donoghue. The rival website used the lifted contents of O'Donoghue's site to sell advertising against it.

Today, Silicon.com reports it's neutered the Web copycat by contacting the site's sole advertiser, Webclients, which has agreed to withhold all payment to 'Car or Car.' Silicon.com also contacted on O'Donoghue's behalf the hosts and administrators of the copycat site, based in Taiwan and Australia repsectively, to inform them of their parts in supporting the bogus webiste.
