Chinese site copies Impact.js website, sells it illegally, US ISP Softlayer ignores DMCA
A chinese website has made a blatant copy of the Impact.js website, translated it into Chinese and is attempting to sell the engine at 1/2 the normal price. Users who purchase from the illegal website end up without support or updates to the engine, making it a raw deal for everyone.
When Impact.js creator Dominic Szablewski registered an account on the website to investigate, the response was to launch a DOS attack on the main Impact.js website.
The website is hosted by U.S. based ISP Softlayer, which ignored Dominic even after he jumped through the hoops of putting together a DMCA notice.
