Beware - New Oracle Fraud site

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

As a publisher, I take it personally when some scum steals my web pages and offers them as their own.  While imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, stealing-is-stealing, and this site is a great way to find out if people have re-published your content on the web.

Here is my review of the US copyright laws and their remedies.  If you must report a infringement to a web hosting company, they may desire an Official DMCA Copyright Infringement Removal Request, and my notes on Defending against web content theft.

These scum sites, www.oraclesource.net and www.examgurus.net been stealing content from other major Oracle sites and cloaking it to drive traffic to their alleged products, Oracle OCP study guides.  This set of web sites are eerily reminiscent of the Oraknowledge Oracle web scan from 2004 where people were bilked out of more than $30,000.

Also see  my notes on defending against web content theft Dr. Tim Hall noted the same fellow earlier this week, stealing content from his web site, as well and his excellent ISP complaint letter may have been responsible for the "oraclesource" site going offline. 

To see these crooks in-action, just enter this query and see the results.  When you click on the result for Garmany, note that the result pages does not match the displayed cached pages and you see an authoritative looking page advertising Oracle study services.

However, when you click the "cached" link, you see that these scum have copied my entire home page for www.dba-oracle.com and cloaked the results with a redirect to hide their content theft.

Here is the whois information on this content thief:

Administrative Contact:

      136 Elizabeth Ave Iselin, NJ 08830
      United States
      +1.212-844-7079      

It links to a related site www.examguru.net, listed as owned by the same fellow, which appears to also be offering unauthorized eBooks from major Oracle publishers.

Here are some illegitimate Oracle books offered on this site, apparently pirated from the major publishers:

Bonus Free ebooks with purchase:

Automating UNIX and Linux Administration

Oracle Database 10g: High Availability with RAC Flashback & Data Guard

Oracle Essentials: Oracle Database 10g
 


Update:  1 August 2006 - I reported the violations to the web host and the main set of pages at www.oraclesource.net have disappeared.  However, the "mother" site at www.examguru.net is still alive and well, offering questionable test study material and pirated Oracle books. 


Update: 3 August 2006

The thief changed to a private domain registrar (to prevent whois from revealing his name), and the crook is back, hosted by .  However, they are still cloaking their pages, a serious offense in Google, and a violation of the Federal Trade Commission deceptive practices guidelines.  Here is the proof:

Internet Copyright infringement with page cloaking

 

If you like Oracle tuning, you may enjoy my new book "Oracle Tuning: The Definitive Reference", over 900 pages of BC's favorite tuning tips & scripts. 

You can buy it direct from the publisher for 30%-off and get instant access to the code depot of Oracle tuning scripts.
