Sevenspark,

Thank you for your explanation. The fact that the promotion of Purevision is from the original template is the bit that I didn’t get, but do now.

Strange to spend all that money on a template and a domain for no obvious reason.

Purevision author makes 5-6 figures a year so I don’t think he would bother with such a small and shady project himself :)

I don’t claim to understand it – in fact I am here asking questions, not making accusations.

The website states that it has been set up to promote Purevision, and appears to do exactly that, so whilst I understand your point, you don’t actually offer an alternative suggestion as to why the website has been set up.

Hi, what’s that got to do with Themeforest? It’s simple, someone used the Purevision WP theme (http://codex.wordpress.org/Templates) on that website.

You linked to an empty page, I don’t understand the point that you make.

Well I don’t know – I just followed the bouncing ball, but the website says that it’s purpose is to promote http://themeforest.net/item/purevision-wordpress-theme/156538 so I assumed that there is a connection. Are you saying that this website isn’t connected to Purevision? It sells the product…...

Hi,

I own the website www.pimlico-flats.co.uk and I recently noticed the website http://www.pimlico-flats.com which besides having a similar domain name has content which has been copied from my website, and then edited to make it different (possibly for SEO reasons). In spite of the changes it is fairly obvious from various phrases that appear that the website started with my content and was then altered.

The new website identifies itself as promoting this website:

” all the content are designed to showcase the PureVISION WP theme on a live site. All images are copyrighted to their respective owners. The PureVISION team respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects you to do the same.”

It doesn’t infringe my IP, or do me any harm, but it puzzles me. Why would someone want to make a copy of my website? Especially one that isn’t terribly good? If they were going to go to all that trouble why not recruit me to help them make it worthwhile?

I really don’t understand what is going on here, but maybe someone can enlighten me?
