It's hard to judge or measure the degree of overlap, but I see exactly
what you mean. Copied graphics, text and presentation. They used you as a
model site, but got disturbingly greedy.
How did you find this out? I know there are tools to detect this, but did
you identify them among search results pages that you target?
I can't find the contact details on whois.net (the whole privacy malarkey
in ICANN), but I suggest you gather some proof and post a complaint to the
host. You have a para-site.
