American Railroads

News each weekday of American railroads. Our focus is on freight rail, but Amtrak and commuter rail are also essential ingredients. Nothing published on holidays.

Thief steals blogs

A company calling itself "www.pkblogs.com" is hijacking Blogspot blogs.

Our address is: http://americanrailroads.blogspot.com

You can also see it at: http://www.pkblogs.com/americanrailroads.

Somehow this guy is presenting the blogs under his domain and can then run his own ads for profit while running our content inside a frame.

This fellow is doing it to a number of blogs now and from what I am hearing elsewhere the hosting company is not doing anything about it.

Blogspot, owned by Google, is a copyright infringement on us and Blogspot.

By the way there is no connection possible at "www.pkblogs.com". Connection is refused. It appears he has some script managing to get the subdomain name and running it as his own.
