    Real potential for damage to PHI.

    My first thought was that PHI was over reacting, but the more I read, the more I see potential for serious damage to PHI.

    Look, if I made a site called and framed this site, what's the harm to Techdirt? None apparently. Even if I later sold, is techdirt directly injured? Not financially, no. But now, months and months later, I've built but a significant amount of traffic who are going to based on the content in I've done no work what so ever, but hundreds of people have bookmarked or linked to

    Now, tomorrow I launch my new site with it's own content completely separate from what's on this site. I throw up some new graphics, new info, new articles. Put a big sign up that says: Welcome to the newly redesigned! That way everyone understands things are a bit different and not worried that it doesn't seem like quite the same site. I've just stolen hundreds of users of techdirt.
