Default Re: My site

Unless you're a complete idiot, it is blindingly obvious that www.dublinpcservices.ie has completely plaigarised and infringed copyright by copying images, testominals, design, logo, and written text from www.quickpcrepair.com. I have informed Quick PC Repair, and they have acknowledged this.

"Dublin PC Services" attempted to rip-me off with illegal behaviour, and so I am shedding light on the matter.

Anyone who thinks there is a justified reason for www.dublinpcservices.ie being the way it is, is ignorant.

Why am I posting here? I felt like it. I didn't realise originally about the 30-day inactivity limit. Why twice? Both were relevant.

Delete it, lock it, whatever - I don't care.

Default Re: My site

I have to say...

I'm looking at both sites. and yes, one is a blatant rip off of the other...

here some of the similarities I noticed...

1, logo,
2, page text
3, footer links
4, layout (ko perhaps I noticed that first)
5, recomendations,
(dublin repair -"Outstanding service by any standard..." -John E. Sigurdson, Ph.D Dublin, Ireland)
(quick repair - "Outstanding service by any standard..." -John E. Sigurdson, Ph.D San Diego, CA)
6, links and menus functionality
7, pictures.

actually with the referrals and testimonies...

try going to the Dublin pc repair site.

then go to google, (in a different tab) now google that persons name.
"...extremely helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable."
-Jessica B.
Dublin, Ireland

so google jessica B inurl:quicklpcrepair

you'll find that pretty much all the testimonials are copied...
what sort of 'quality' business doesn't have it's own customers to say how good it's service is?

or even lies

clearly, your reference knows that he serves the San Diego area! even if you don't. you rip off his words to falsely promote your business, you change them to make it look like he said something he clearly never has, and are then dumb enough to link to the site that blows the lid off the whole deal! you even write testimony's with your name in them praising you as an individual for all the hard work you've done!!!

and incidentally...

it's quite clear and obvious that the page is a rip off.
if anything you should remove the disclaimer at the bottom saying you've made it... it's clear all that you've done is gone to the other site and presses "file" then "save as".


yes, it's a lovely site.

it's just a shame that you couldn't make it yourself.

you've ripped people off, copied design work and photos without permission.
you've plagiarized page text and you've quoted people, clearly without their permission and clearly lying...

if all of that wasn't actually so serious it's be kind of funny...

as it is my last three points RE: your copyright theft, and quoting people without their permission is actually illegal

I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
