    Tips on how to stop sites to RIP your stuff.

    I need help, i have 2 games/programs, that gladly enough are very popular, i get aprox 50000 hits per day for them, but along with that
    i also get a flood of sites that run my games in a frame on there site. and this is not good at all for me.
    First question is: Is this even legal, and it dosent matter anyways,
    because its no idea to try to sue, or whatever. not gonna happend.
    Second Question: How can i prevent this the best way ?
    Right now, i just have a text on the indexsite of the game, saying that "If your not on www.mingem.nu blah blah, you should go there.."
    and whatever, its the best i could think of.

    Any ideas ? MindGem

    Flash Games?

    HTML:
    Code:
    <script language="JavaScript">
    <!--
    	if (window != top) {
    		top.location.href = location.href;
    	}
    //-->
    </script>
    Flash:
    Code:
    if (_flash._url != "http://www.mingem.nu/graffiti.swf") {
    	_flash.unloadMovie();
    }

    Hi,

    just wnted to remind you that someone could just do
    <embed src="http://www.mingem.nu/graffiti.swf" ...>
    This way the flsh test would allow the movie AND you would even pay for the bandwidth

    Damn!

    Cus thats the biggest threat to me, the bandwidth
    from that site, the worst of them, i get i dunno, 20-30 thousand hits
    and thats alot of bandwidth, for my program that is 200-300kb

    I tested with this,

    if (_flash._url != "http://www.mingem.nu/graffiti.swf") {
    _flash.unloadMovie();
    getURL(http://www.mindgem.nu/graffiti.html);
    }

    cus i wanted to reload to my site. but this cause it to open about
    20 new windows, before it stopped, or i stopped it.
    Arrg..


    oh well...

    Hi,

    there was a good one posted in scripting & backend a few weeks ago: essentially the movie makes a call to javascript to retrieve the location (of the html page)
    This may not work with every browser
    Have the movie interact with the server ... and generate a bit of extra traffic this way
