I have emailed Knoji countless times for various reasons including removal of my articles never once have I got a reply. I have asked questions on the help forum to only find no answers.
I want to copy my content and put it on my blog then I want to request that Google takes my Knoji articles off search.
I read the Knoji TOS but I am not sure if coping my own content can get me in legal trouble with Knoji?
I know Google frowns on copied content so I won't publish my copied content until Google has removed the original content from serps.
Any Help Would Be Appreciated Thanks!

However, you must provide a reasonable reason for removal of Content published on Knoji, in particular Content for which you have already been paid a non-refundable an upfront royalty.
The "we do not claim ownership" line seems pretty clear to me. They don't own your content, you do.
I realize I own my content. I also realize I am not earning from my content and they are and they never made any effort at all to fix the problem. So I figured since it is my content why not put it on my blog.
I am just trying to make sure I don't hang myself in the process. What would you do in a situation like this?
Since you have compassion and a sharp mind, I suggest that you follow your heart and do what you think is best. Be pro-active. Remember, you can't keep a good man down (species speaking). There are many facets to every personality.
