>Okay, I've recently came across this when I just happened to be

After sending my previous response, I located a webbed version of 
your handout and compared the two. I think they are clearly guilty of 
both plagiarism and copyright violation. I've attempted to put a 
comment on their site to that effect, but it isn't clear if the 
commenting software is currently working. I wasn't able to find any 
email address for the organization or any of its members.

If anyone on the list knows any of them, I would appreciate an email 
address so that I can point out to them that what they are doing is 
equivalent to "winning" an archery competition by having a better 
archer enter under your name.

If you want to go to the trouble, your legal recourse is to send 
their ISP a takedown notice, instructing them to take down the 
material webbed in violation of your copyright.. I've never done one, 
so can't give you any details of just how.
