I have just discovered that a well-known purveyor of IM goods and services has nicked my website and is selling MY product using MY name and MY photo - without my permission.
I originally contacted this person for a joint venture last year because he was a big name here in the UK which he agreed to but I later pulled out because it didn't feel right and I have since found a lot of negative feedback about him - on this forum and elsewhere.
I wish I could post his name up as a warning to others but I doubt I can get away with that. Anyway, it's something to keep in mind - if you are asked to give a potential partner your hard work so that they can put it on their own servers and run the JV from their side (why didn't I spot that???) think twice.
Having said all that, does anyone know how I should proceed? I'm guessing there's nothing that can be done and to be honest, I'm not that bothered about him taking the product - that happens a lot and if people are so p**s weak that they will stoop to stealing other people's work I pity them - it's just that he's using my name and photo to promote it in a way I don't want to be associated.
