from the gee,-that-seems-a-bit-similar dept is suing for a ton of stuff. Basically, it seems obvious that is using’s brand to sell books, and doesn’t like it. I find’s response somewhat amusing though. It’s the “play innocent” tactic which is pretty damn see through.

Good luck

This type of thing has come up before, but probably not quite as blatantly. There are a ton of sites out there that take the exact HTML code from another site and incorporate it on their site. Usually the copy-cat site is not in direct competition with the competitor, but the law is really, really fuzzy when it comes to these issues. I’d wager this will never go to court and will be settled.
