Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery - or a rip off?

Is imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? Well it seems someone has decided to start a blog using almost the identical name (Daily Referendum blog) as mine (Daily Referendum). I can't see any reason for this new blog other than to earn money from google ads. The owner seems to be posting random pictures with the main part of the screen taken up by a google ad. They have even engineered their links to so called news items to blend in with the ads.

I doubt there is much I can do about this as the name of this new blog is slightly different. Some people have no shame. I wonder how many other blogs this person has running with copycat names?
