Don’t believe that pirated website content is really a problem? Can’t imagine that anyone would really steal somebody else’s website look, feel, or content?
Well, think again, because it’s real, and it happens. But don’t take Aunty’s word for it. Because there is a website out there which is devoted to outing such copycat sites. It’s pretty amazing to look at one site, and then another, and realize that they have identical elements and layout which could not be independently developed by the proverbial infinite monkeys, let alone a few human beings.
Now you can review these sites, including screen shots, and it’s fascinating. And while this often has the desirous effect of causing the pirate site to change its stripes, or spots, there are still enough copycat sites which remain up after being posted to the site to make for a very interesting tour.
