Hub copied after removing it from a site & before putting it here

    So I had a poem on deviantart which I wrote in 2002 (and it still shows up in search results.) It was apparently copied in August 2011 by another site. I did not know about this and I published it here and deleted it off deviantart. I cannot 'undelete' it from deviantart.

    The person's site is hosted via freewebs.com

    google.com/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=%22A+single+red+rose%2C+With+beauty+above+all+others%2C+Scarlet+petals+glisten+like+the+sunrise%2C%22&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8


    Any idea on how I should proceed given that the dupe was made before I published it here?

    It might be be possible to use the Wayback Machine (web.archive.org/) to call up the 2002 copy of your poem on Deviant Art? You could the use that as evidence of prior publication in a DMCA notice against the copying site.
