copywrite problem

Hello everyone,

Quick question, I have found a site that has copied tons of my articles without retaining the links with them. On top of this being incredibly rude, I have no idea what I'm supposed to do about it? No contact information seems to be present on the offending website? Any ideas what my next step is here?

Thank You,
Unit

Hi Unit,

You can file a DMCA(Digital Millenium Copyright Act) complaint, which if proven, will remove the website with plagiarized content from its web hosts legally.

For more information on how you can do this you can check the link below:

Hope that helps : )

You can also see who the webhost is and email them and tell them in detail and tell them that the offending site has blatantly copied your content and you want the site removed or the content taken off ASAP.
Wait for their response first and if they do nothing then tell them you will be contacting the DMCA.
