Dear list members,
Recently, the following message was posted to the cni-copyright list. If
you struggle with the same questions, have a look at Ivan Hoffman's
articles on his Web site at: http://home.earthlink.net/~ivanlove/
I created a website for a client. Another internet provider
came along a year later and told my client that he (the provider)
could hack into my site, take all the images, database code,
website design etc and... cut my price for web hosting by
50%. My client agreed, the hacking was done, and a "new"
website appear on the hackers computers, complete with my
images, backgrounds, etc that I had custom created myself.
The "hacker" even went so far as to remove all of my
copyright notices that were on each and every page, and
then replaced them with his own.
My "ex-client" is a nationally owned/franchised realtor in Houston
Texas. The provider is a big time web creator/host, also
Do I have any recourse?

You should read a number of articles on my site under the link
"Articles for Web Site Designers and Site Owners" including "Who
Owns the Copyright in Your Web Site?," and "Taking Over a Web Design
And by all means, for the future, have an attorney prepare for you a
thorough web design agreement covering this and many, many other
