Anyway, how about this for taking liberties. A few months ago I helped this guy with his website and he was always asking me questions about how I managed to do this and that with one of my sites. He even wanted to know the exact colours that I used for my Adsense. He wanted to know how I created my theme, where I got my content from, where I got my backlinks from.
To cut a long story short, the other day I was looking at my competitors for one of my websites when I saw a site indexed a few down from my site that had a similar domain name to mine. When I clicked on it I saw that it was almost an exact copy of my site! Even all the content was the same, the images were the same (in fact when I checked the source they were being accessed directly from my site!!! My bandwidth!!!)
I then did a whois check and found that lo and behold the site belonged to this guy I had been helping.. I just couldn't believe the depths some people go to.
I issued a DMCA request to their hosts to get the site shut down which it now is thankfully but it has upset me to be honest. It won't stop me helping people when and if I can but it will make me more guarded with the information I dish out.
