Well I posted an angry cybersquatting message Hobbs.

Can't you take any legal action that doesn't require expensive lawyers?

Did you file a formal complaint with youtube, demonstrating the long list of "HQ" sites related to video games? I'm sure they would take your case seriously seeing how long they have been around and that you would naturally move onto "xboxone-hq.com" etc

aaah. Don't think I'll worry too much about it. It's a small channel. But yeah, I know the feeling. I fucking hate people who rips off other peoples ideas and try to go big (and sometimes do go big) with something that isn't theirs at all.

It's gonna be your site hobbs that's gonna blow up. It won't be any other copy cat sites that blow up this big..

They wont stand a chance but once the our site is up I would open a copyright claim.

thanks for all the support guys, i've had several emails about this and what members plan to do about it as well.. appreciate it and keep the comments and support coming.. XboxONE-HQ is nearly ready to go online for a BETA.. Sure it won't have everything that we all wanted but atleast i will get it up and then we can build on it before these guys rip off our sites.
