    One again I was able to find a stolen copy of one of my web sites with this (very useful) tool.
    Somebody stole the whole content of my web site, made a few cosmetic changes and replaced my affiliate ID (all but a few (expired) I was able to find in the invalid links reports)

    The thief is a CJ affiliate.

    What should I do?

    The site is hosted free by by Netfirms Web Hosting

    Todd can you help me? Can CJ deactivate the offending affiliate?

    Cj should exclude at once. Is there no copyright rules who can stop this?

    FYI,
    I contacted Netfirms the host for my stolen website.
    Here's their answer:

    Pretty fast and positive answer for a free host

    I'm still waiting for CJ answer, hope they have a no tolerance for thieves. Can you confirm CJ position, Todd?

    Network Quality would handle this. Each case is evaluated indivually. You would need to submit a request via "Ask A Question".

    It looks like the situation has been handled though I think what you did is the best way to handle these types of situations.

    Thanks Todd,
    The offending website is deactivated now, so your Network Quality Team may have a problem to check it but I sent an email via "Ask A Question" with the CJ affiliate ID.
    I'll appreciate if your team could check if the same affiliate have other stolen websites. I know it could be difficult.

    Any honorable Host provider, or an affiliate tracking service company should immediately disable any copyright infringement issues immediately upon proof. Our service has an absolute 0 tolerence for either offenses.
