Site's stealing code snippets

Posted 26 August 2012 - 04:20 PM

This site has a whole bunch of code snippets from here. I'm not sure if this is against DreamInCode policy or what, but I'm sure there may be some people here who do not want their work on sites other than DreamInCode, especially sites that also feature exploit scripts.

Oh and if you want to see what snippets they have from you, just go to http://icodesnip.com/user/(your name)

I'm not really asking anything, I just thought people should know about it.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 2

When I found out (quite sometime ago), I directed them to remove mine.

How did you go about that? There doesn't seem to be any contact info or report mechanisms.

Can you guys match up 10-20 of them and post links to the URL there as well as the URL here at dream.in.code.

I'll submit a DMCA request to their host and domain provider to have the site shut down based on those finding.

Here, they provide it themselves:

http://icodesnip.com...h?q=dreamincode

Eight pages!:

http://icodesnip.com...h/dreamincode/8

Edit:

Here are all mine they scraped:

http://icodesnip.com...ult-dreamincode
http://www.dreaminco...snippet6098.htm

http://icodesnip.com...hod-dreamincode
http://www.dreaminco...snippet5617.htm

http://icodesnip.com...pdf-dreamincode
http://www.dreaminco...snippet5503.htm

http://icodesnip.com...ure-dreamincode
http://www.dreaminco...snippet5505.htm

But just search your own name there, Chris. They've got all yours. Search Raynes. They've got most of his. That alone will be enough to show just how much they stole.

http://icodesnip.com/search?q=arenlor still exists even though they put a 404 on the link. His email is now in the whois registry. I'm assuming that skyhawk133 has something to do with that.

They removed my links from the search results, because I emailed the registrant a C&D order. But the links to each individual snippet are all still live.

Skyhawk133, the guy still hasn't removed mine, which can be found at: http://icodesnip.com/search?q=arenlor which I specifically asked about. So I'd think DMCA is the only way to go.
