Dudes, anyone know what's up with fordfuelinjection.com? I went there today as a reference to help another user, and the site came up as suspended. What's up with that???

Yea, I had already sent him e-mail via the above, but I hope the reference site is experiencing nothing more than a "blip".

Exclamation FordFuelInjection website

A lawyer working for Ford Motor Company just had my web hosting server shut down. They never contacted me directly, so I got the feeling this is barely legal. But my hosting company acted quickly to protect themselves without putting much thought into it. I know 99% of the content on my site was hosted on many other sites. First protect yourself if necessary, secondly if you have any advice that would disprove their claims let me know.
Here is part of that email:

Did they say precisely "what" copyrighted materials you where using?

Otherwise it's a form letter. Ford has been doing this for years. It was only a matter of time until they did this due to the sites name, I'm surprised it lasted this long.

Make sure you have nothing that actually is copyrighted by them (Original wiring diagrams, photos, ect) and move all the actual reference material over to RJMtech and that should keep them off your back.

As long as you have "Ford" in the sites URL they are going to be on you.

This was NOT for the domain name FordFuelInjection
It was targeted at the content on the web server

For my own reference, and because I'm a regular poster over at http://www.ford-trucks.com/. I use the reference site to help newbie users understand their trucks. I try to give back what's been given to me, and http://fordfuelinjection.com is instrumental in me doing so.

What gack is saying is the url made them more likely to target the website. Hell the domain itself is probably worth some money to them.

rehost the info under something like, "ryansfuelinjection.com"

Wow, the mind reels that Ford would have an issue with a site that promotes their product by offering info and solutions to common user issues.

Anyway, if fordfuelinjection has to be rehosted under another name (with careful attention to it's content), can you imagine the thousands of broken links on forums such as this one that have linked to info on that site? What a friggin mess that will be!

Anyway, at least now I know what's going on....

I guess they want the general public to be clueless so they can't fix their vehicles and either scrap them to buy new or bring them to the dealer for work.

Just a thought....move fordfuelinjection.com to another host, and change your DNS pointers. Make Ford work for this. Make them prove infringement. I think your host just chickened out on you...you need a more "robust" host.

Never give up, never give in!! Remember, we're built Ford Tuff!!

I think it sucks that they would bother to spend the time and money to force you to remove information that is helpful to users of their products and especially, products that they dont even support anymore. Hope this doesnt cause you too many problems with your site and business...
