About this Blog - I am speechless! Any thoughts from readers on how to proceed?

While I have been struggling to keep the Indiana Law Blog going, trying to encourage readers to become ILB supporters, I learned yesterday that the southern Indiana law firm founded by the wealthy and powerful Stephen L. Ferguson has for years shamelessly benefited from the output from my Indiana Law Blog!

Take a look. The ILB is the focus of its website. The website does not merely reproduce an occasional entry here or there. It lifts every single ILB entry and passes it off as one of its "Resources."

Moreover, the website of Ferguson & Ferguson has featured the output of the Indiana Law Blog as its own, without comment or attribution, and certainly without my permission or knowledge, since 2007, possibly longer!

For proof, here is the Ferguson & Ferguson website as it appeared in 2007, via the WayBack machine (slow loading, be patient).

Thoughts?

[More] Here is a pdf I just made of the Ferguson website, showing this very entry.
