    Angry Copied Source Code


    When we checked the backlinks of our website, an odd url popped up.
    Those people are having a single page with source code copied from our old website with contact us
    page leading to our current contact us page.When we checked their traffic, we found they are having
    about 3k visitors per month but of domain autority 1. When we contacted the guy who owns the website, he shut it down.
    But still can there be any negative impact to our website because of that copied source code?

    I don't think so there is any negative impact of copied source code but you can file the copyright case on those who do this job, I mean who copied your code.
    But there is another thing too, there are so many websites that have the same UI or same theme, it means they have same source code as well, so there is no negative impact.
    If anyone copied or hack your business logics that you create yourself for the aspect of website security you have to file the copyright case.
    I may be wrong but again I want to say there is no negative impact.
