Q. What can I do to prevent others from copying original material from my website?

A. You have  at least five possible avenues:
1. There have been cases in which a web hosting company forced the offending party to remove the material.

2. Consult a lawyer about Intellectual property violation and have the attorney contact the offending party to cease.

3. File a lawsuit (usually not worth the expense).

4. Contact the regional or national trade association for ideas on how others have handled similar situations.

5. Poll members of a forum of business owners for their ideas.
