ICANN Registrar IISP.HK copies two dozen DomainGang articles without authorization

ZFBot

Update: IISP.HK have now removed the stolen DomainGang content, per our request.

IISP.HK is an ICANN accredited registrar in Hong Kong, China.

Under their News category, they regularly copied and posted blog articles of other domain bloggers, including two dozen articles from DomainGang and others from Domain News Wire.

They felt that copying content is ok, as long as the article seemed interesting.

With some articles, they altered the titles. With others, they even linked to their own registration services, e.g. changing references from GoDaddy to IISP.hk.

IISP.HK was first contacted yesterday on a single instance of a copied post, which was removed. The cached copy can still be found here.

After going through the entire News section at IISP.HK, we sent them 23 more articles that were copied from DomainGang without authorization.

Hopefully, the employee who is responsible for this will be terminated, as it gives an ICANN accredited registrar a bad name.

We are expecting all articles to be removed and have kept copies of the content as it appeared on the IISP.HK servers.

Such copyright violations give a bad name to the domain industry.

The stolen content still active at the time of this post is listed below:
