As of today, the design, content and even markup of Digital Web Magazine has been lifted, copied, reproduced and out right stolen more than 25 times. Thankfully, of those 25 thefts all have been brought to justice one way or another. Some where kind enough to remove the stolen code or design, others just simply closed down their site while they redesigned. Some cases where the owners chose not to comply to our demands, their sites were shut down by their ISP and sometimes even by their own government. I bring this up because a dear friend of mine, Shirley Kaiser, has recently seen her hard work taken and abused. She explains it all and provides some handy resources on her site; Brainstorms and Raves.
