Copy listings from categories?

Hello,

I came across a network of directory sites that have several listings that are word for word the same as DMOZ listings. The duplicate listings are mixed in with other listings and no credit is given to DMOZ.

I know sometimes site owners will submit their sites to directories using the same description so maybe this is what has happened. And I know you are not supposed to copy the whole directory without giving credit to DMOZ, but does DMOZ care if just a few listings are copied? And if they do care, at what point would a site cross the line?

Also, if this is unnacceptable then where would a person go to make a report?
