	If you really have no control over them send them "Cease and Desist"
	messages as they are obviously using your domain name without

	If they are supposed to be using your domain name then you do have
	control though it may not be direct control.  Talk to whomever
	authorised their use of your domain name.  Usually a simple email
	with instructions on how to turn off updating off is enough.  As
	you are a publisher I would include instructions for both Macs and
	Windows boxes.
