What is the email address for making a DMCA complaint for a trifling blogger on blogspot? I just went through a feedback route on "Google Blogger" site policies to ask for an address but I know that wasn't the proper procedure. I'm a little frazzled, mad because one of my best performers went from around 100 views yesterday to 13 today. Please HELP! I'm also at jury duty, will check back. (Sigh)
I've tried this before and was not successful because I get really confused with the steps. Once I get to the step with logging in to my Google account, I'm lost! Can't figure out what's next. It's probably me. I will have to find the specific steps, print it out and have it beside me when I have more time at my desktop. Or have someone walk me through it on the phone.
I've been trying to address this particular hub issue for some time. Could there be another reason this hub all of a sudden tanked? It's on a niche site and has been fine for months even though I couldn't get the copy taken down.
Its driving me nuts too! some of the hubs you can't get a form for because the site in question doesn't have adverts so not googles problem! but that still takes our revenue just by being there. And the others take for ages Some times you can't contact the site purely because its owned by the person doing it! My adsense has gone down to 2 dollars a day! checking for copyright infringement I have found at least 30 of my top hubs, well, they are my top hubs! have all been copied! I am going to be there forever!
I never waste time contacting the site, unless it looks like someone who's done it innocently (e.g. a church reproducing an article on shyness because they think it's useful).
What you need to do is find out who hosts the site and then report straight to them. It's the same as when you report a Blogger blog to Google - Google is the host and they have the power to close them down.
My attitude, too. I think of the 100+ I've filed, I only though that 2 of them were innocent. So I almost always go straight to the host. Just wish I could get better results from foreign ones, particularly those in China.
Wish I could figure out what to do with "spun" copies, too - I've got over a dozen of those that I haven't filed on because I can't show that they are copies. HP says they are, and they're right, but proving it is another matter.
That's it, wilderness! It's spun, not a copy. They copied entire sections, rearranged the formatting, changed title and subtitles and added different images. And it is a foreign site, Chinese I think. Ugh!!!
I totally get you now! I just tried to file one too, and boy is it so complicated! I went through the whole thing and then it just stops! with a silly little note at the bottom saying, was that helpful???? er no its not! I want my stuff back!
Okay, I just tried it on my tablet, where I'm not logged in to Google. You're right, it takes me to the log in page. But if I log in and leave it open in its new tab, and then go back and click the link again, it goes right to the form. It seems you need to be logged in to Google, then you can go directly to the form
Sorry you have to deal with that, janshares. You would think there would be more proactive things writers can do to protect their work. Someone should get busy designing some sort of anti-theft technology or something of that nature. If it can even be done I don't know.
I wanted to share an email that I received four days after filing a DMCA complaint against copied material I found upon searching. This is not the first positive result I have had from various DMCA complaints...
I've sent three emails and a certified letter to a website owner who has stolen one of my Hubs, following the DMCA protocol to a T. (I got the vital stats and a postal address from Who Is.) All with no response...
I have a problem. Encyclopedial.com has reprinted about a dozen of my articles, word for word, with no credit to me and without permission, and just keeps scooping more out of my hubpages. I cannot find anything on the...
Well I'm just in a doozy. I dislocated my shoulder last weekend, had to go to ER, x-rays and then they reset the shoulder. Now I'm in a sling but I still can't raise my arm more than a few inches.So I come to my fellow...
I have to issue a grovelling apology here, I stuffed up mightily. I posted an explanation of how to claim authorship with Google, and made one small but extremely important mistake. For those who followed...
