NOTE: Regarding tips from this site published on exceltip.com:
On April 21st 2003 Joseph Rubin, the owner of the site exceltip.com, asked for permission to republish tips from erlandsendata.no on his site exceltip.com.
Permission to republish content from erlandsendata.no was granted on April 22nd 2003 on the condition that each republished tip from erlandsendata.no on exceltip.com contained a link back to erlandsendata.no.
On April 25th 2003 Joseph Rubin confirmed that more than 50 tips from erlandsendata.no was republished on exceltip.com with a link back to erlandsendata.no and a reference to my name on each republished tip.
I verified that Joseph Rubin had published tips from erlandsendata.no and every published tip contained a reference to my name and a link back to erlandsendata.no as per our agreement.
E-mail containing the agreement between erlandsendata.no and exceltip.com.

After new owners took over the site exceltip.com, the new owners have not been honoring the original agreement and are republishing tips from erlandsendata.no without any reference or link back to erlandsendata.no. Exceltip.com are also not answering my requests where I have asked them to honor the agreement and add a link back to erlandsendata.no on the tips they publish that originated from erlandsendata.no.
