Just repeating the problem to make sure that I understand your question: The problem is that someone copies your website or parts of it to offer it on his own website?

In this case it might be technically impossible to prevent this. If the person doesn't use an automatic duplicating tool that is located on his webserver I'm afraid you can't do anything. Because he will login to the internet using a dynamic assigned IP address you won't be able to block the access. If the tool is located on the webserver itself however you are able to determine its IP address and can block access from this IP.

I would recommend to contact the webmaster of the webserver and ask him to not use your content - or to pay for. I think in most contries copying content from other servers to the own one won't be legal.

More to the point, contact the ISP that is hosting his website and let them know that you plan to include them in the lawsuit if they don't restrict this guy.

1) how can I find out his IP address?

Start > Run >
now type
cmd /k ping yahoo.com
<--- this will display the IP address of yahoo,com, you will need to substitute the offending web page.

Either ping or tracert in command mode will give you the ip address. To block it you will have to go to server side technology to block it. If you you can use ASP on your system then make your pages .asp and structured like so

<% request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_HOST")  <>  'ip address to block'  then%>
 
HTML content of page

<%End If %>

You drop a cookie off on his machine by e-mailing him an URL with some info he might want to see. You can enquire of the cookie as it is yours and block him form seeng the pages. Once you are sure he has opened the page delete it. (probably violated EE membership agreement by saying that)

Concerning the variable IP address problem you will be forced to block the domain as he will be coming (probably) through a proxy.
