I was watching an episode of Maggie and the Ferocious Beast with my youngest daughter, Kerrigan, recently. It was an episode where one of the characters would repeat whatever anybody else said.
This character was labeled a copycat by the others. Ever since then, whenever somebody does something annoying or naughty, little Kerrigan calls them a copycat.
As I was doing a routine check of which sites were copying my content and/or images this morning, I came across CYMedia Group. They went for the trifecta – appropriating my copy, images, and bandwidth (linking to the images on my server).
Here is a screen shot of the Outsourced Affiliate Program Management services provided by CYMedia Group at http://www.cymediagroup.com/internetmarketing/18.html this morning:
Since they were linking to images on my server, I updated the files to let them know… you got served!
Kerrigan is only two and she knows it’s not cool to be a copycat. Why didn’t these guys know?
