      Is there some body of people pursuing these unattributed thefts?

        A nice example of such theft is the notorious enci.ru website, which features
        a recursive ripoff of ru.wikipedia.org, with blind search and replace of
        all "wiki" into "Encyclo" (in Russian, "w" and "v" map to the same letter),
        coining such memes as "Encyclongs", both as people and a NASA space program
        consisting of two probes, "Encyclong-1" and "Encyclong-2"; "bolsheEncylo"
        (bolsheviks), "Welcome to Encyclopedia - a free encyclopedia" and so on...
        Later on, all the fuss turned out to be a clever virus marketing PR...
