It isn't just stuff from Jonathan's website that has been lifted.  I have no connection whatever with this company but just had a look at their website out of interest and was somewhat suprised to see a picture of MYSELF working on a Minor under their "services" and then "restoration" heading!!

The picture in question is subject to legal copyright by the artist Tim Wait as can still (just) be read in the bottom corner "Tim Wait c95".  It is lifted from a card available for purchase at the Gaydon Motor Museum.

I would respectfully suggest that this too is removed from the "Restoration" section of your website Mr DG and replaced with something which actually reflects your own business?  I also had to turn off my computer after my visit to rid it of all the annoying "pop-up"   "you could win an ipod" competitions which I couldn't delete any other way :evil:  

No doubt Mr DG employed a third party to design his website but I'm sure he is aware that it contains "borrowed" content.  If he wasn't, then he is now.

That drawing is what has replaced Jonathan's photos and words.

A case of out of the frying pan into the fire! :shock:

Text is still there Al, despite an email late last night. I'll give it till noon then call the legals.
Think the web designer needs get their act sorted as its caused unnecessary ill feeling between two companies. But as mentioned the company DG Services do have a duty to check the source material for their own site.

That's a bit naughty, I used to do the website for the East kent Morris Minor club and was annoyed to find someone had nicked the background, layout and even some text from my site.

Why can't people come up with their own original ideas???

True to his word Dave at DG Services has now had the whole resto page removed. I look forward to seeing his new one, and putting this sorry episode behind us. :D

A good result for both companies (maybe not so good for whoever did the website in question)
