i live in canada. i created a website for a friend's business back in 2001. recently, an disgruntled ex-employee of my friend (whom he fired) started up his own company to compete directly with him. fair enough, he's allowed to do that. however, what he did was tell a webmaster that he had verbal permission to copy my friend's ENTIRE site word for word. the webmaster did not ask questions and copied the entire site only changing the header (company name) and contact info such as phone numbers and email addresses. the way i see that, it's against the law !!! what can i do to force his webmaster to take down the site asap ? is the webmaster liable as well ? thank you.
