The icecast team that you so quickly blame for your problems has nothing to 
do with the actual usage of our product.  It's clear to me that someone is 
trying to relay your content (without your authorization) and you deduce 
that since it appears in our directory, that we are causing it.  That is 
flat out wrong, and you might want to do some checking next time before you 
come out and accuse people you really don't even know of something devious.

as far as your problem goes...I'd suggest you do some googling on "Net Abuse".
