View Full Version : Copied my text

08-18-2009, 05:06 AM
I did a website for a local restaurant but then fell out with them so they hired somebody else to do another site but the menu is exactly the same and also still has a couple of my spelling mistakes

Should I contact the new designer for coping my my work?

Can I add hidden text in the page or something so you can check it itís been hijacked and reused

i think you might have difficulties proving who wrote the text , but you could try and contact them and charge them for each spelling mistake ( :) sorry couldnt resist that), they may not know who actually wrote the text
hiding content can be hazardous in terms of search engine banning and besides in the case you mentioned wouldn't the new company just delete it?

I don't really understand...They asked their web designer to write their menu? Wouldn't a chef usually do that? I think you'd struggle with that one as Ed says.

Were you paid for the work you did?
