The pros advantage con artists - Intellectual property theft notice - TheProsAdvantage .com
I received an email from my LEC 4 clients Matt Barker / Brandon Hedges regarding an interesting inquiry they received at their LEC 4 website http://www.homesofminnesota.com - someone was accusing THEM of copying their design. Huh? Wait a sec - the LEC 4 is a design / architecture belonging to Real Estate Webmasters - they own the copyright and intellectual property rights to it - what is going on here? So they email me the complaint.
Naturally I go through the ROOF! - Turns out this hack company "The Pros Advantage" sold this poor Realtor OUR DESIGN! (Charged him $3500 to rip it off basically) but of course the victim one David Bigham (Minneapolis Minnesota) had no idea that not only had he been swindled - he is now liable for intellectual property theft to boot because his domain (a domain he controls) is voluntarily pointing to a stolen design and he paid the bill (albeit unknowingly) to have this done.
Shame on you The Pros Advantage you lowlife scumbag thieves! I called you btw - but your cheap 800 number doesn't work from Canada (imagine that) so I was forced to email firstname.lastname@example.org - (Anyone else who wants to email them and tell them what they think of these unscrupulous actions feel free)
PS - Aaron just pointed this one out - what a bunch of friggin morons! (See screenshot below) - not only was this already an open and shut case - you didn't even remove our copyright notification from the source code.
What's next for REW vs The Pros Advantage?
Well like my email said - if you don't take down every single image, line of code, derivative work that you have stolen (or has even been inspired by) a Real Estate Webmasters design - you will have your C & D, DMCA and shortly after court appearence papers.
But that's not it - I am REALLY pissed! You have ripped off one of my premier products AFTER seeing it go live on your ex client site www.tommypennington.com and AFTER calling me asking if I was interested in potentially hiring you / buying your company. Are you kidding me - no that's not it - I have been meaning to visit many friends in Minneapolis anyways - I will pay you a visit as well (by now you know it won't be a friendly one) - that way you can look me in the eye and explain to me how MY design (MY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY) ended up a cheap knockoff produced under your company name and sold to some poor schmuck for $3500 - trust me when I say your explanation better be PRETTY DAMNED GOOD!
Realtors Stay away from THEPROSADVANTAGE (The Pros Advantage or TPA) their site is theprosadvantage.com and they are nothing but a bunch of lying, cheating thieves! (PS - I would be happy to offer a 50% discount on ALL REW out of the box products to any customer of TheProsAdvantage.com that would like to switch away from these lowlifes - post a comment with your URL if you are interested in switching) - who's to say you won't be the next poor Realtor to get an irate phone call from a reputable design / programming company demanding immediate action or you will get sued. Get out now - (if you don't like what we have to offer, I would be happy to suggest alternatives as well) -
Anyways - now it's out here The Pros Advantage you bunch of scumbags - you better get with the program and get those files deleted quick - (and send me a notarized letter cofirming you have done so) or we will be having words (Our legal team and you - and ME and YOU) - you have messed with the WRONG webmaster.
