At that point, Hilton "copied a lot of our verbage into his web site, without our permission, without my consent," Angelino says.
For example, check out this Allied Defense Systems page that advertises force protection equipment for "Nuclear/Biological/Chemical (WMD)." And then check out the wholesale duplicate of the Allied Defense Systems content on this APPF page (clumsily copied, it suggests that APPF is in fact selling weapons of mass destruction).
Hilton had claimed Allied Defense Systems was providing uniforms for APPF, the AP reported last week. As a result of that and the Web site plagiarism, an Allied lawyer sent APPF a cease and desist letter last week. And Angelino says there might be further legal action down the road.
He adds that Hilton described APPF's parent company as a security firm operating in Iraq and Afghanistan, but couldn't remember the name of the company. APPF's ex-lawyer has said the parent company was founded in 1984.
APPF's spokeswoman has not responded to requests for comment today.
