Imagine my surprise when I found this link posted above Shocked

http://www.geocities.com/jackarthur46/electric_blue.html

It has been taken word for word from my EBD profile article that I wrote on Tropical Resources...Along with two of my photos Rolling Eyes

http://www.tropicalresources.net/phpBB2/fish_profiles_octofaciatus_blue.php

Anyone have any idea who this site was created by or how to contact this person?

Not sure who's site it is but when I read that, I thought it looked like an exact copy of yours. Hard to mistake those beautiful pics too. Not good. Good luck getting that one rectified.

When the main page of that site came up briefly I was able to gather an email contact from the site creator. I have sent him a note and if I don't hear anything within a short period of time I will go through the written "infringement" procedure that they ask for.

Split here since this is a spinoff topic from the original thread.

Tommy, I wish you all the luck in getting that plagiarist page off the web...honestly I've become too old and tired to fight battles like that anymore Sad

I would at least want him to give you credit for the info. I personally don't mind if someone used my info to help others. But if they are going to do it word for word then at least give a link to where he got the info. Just my opinion.

This should actually have a happy ending as the site owner got back to me and was very apologetic. He took the page down while he fixes it up with the appropriate credits etc. All's well that ends well... Smile
