June 21, 2012: Originally Dance Clothes UK copied "tips for wearing tights" in its entirety but has now eliminated a couple of sentences, leaving the rest of their plagiarism intact. They also stole entire paragraphs from my how to wear a dance belt section.
Does this look familiar?
How about this?
If you believe in paying liars and cheats, be sure to do business with these people and buy something. Otherwise, consider sending them an email supporting my position. It should be pointed out that I don't make any money at all publishing this website, while they do make a profit ripping it off.

Thank you so much! Removing or re-writing your page will solve this problem.
"Doctor Dancebelt's Guide - Everything you need to know about dance belts and more" is an online resource for new dance belt wearers to learn about these unique garments, as well as a source for store information, reviews, and wearing tips. It is designed to be linked to on studio websites and recommended by dance teachers. Your store is even mentioned in the online store list as a place where dance belts can be purchased!
The page you copied is located at
and here's your page
It is commendable that your store features men's dance gear, and I would hope we can co-exist for mutual benefit in the future.

Subject: Website plagiarism - second request
OK guys, if you want a war, bring it on!
I'm sure you could write an article about wearing tights without stealing my writing. If not, you could at least credit the source - my website - and link to it. Once again I request you get rid of the offending page. Failure to act will force me to take measures to protect myself from your plagiarism.
On May 8, I sent you the following:
"Your website says you have imaginative and creative dancewear. Terrific!
What you don't have is imagination and creativity in writing the website. Your article on tips for tights for men is 100% copied from "Dr. Dancebelt's Guide: everything you need to know about dance belts and more"
Please tell me what you plan to do to correct this problem immediately.
