Lately, I've been filing DMCAs left to right. Most of them have been easy-peasy, thanks to Hubpages new built-in option to file from Hubpages directly. But there is one that is giving me a headache, and with my lack of experience, I can't make heads or tails of it.
The site that posted my article is "proudly powered by wordpress", but when I tried to file the DMCA(after trying to resolve it with the site owner first, of course) with Wordpress's DMCA form, it states
"The URL(s) you provided for Location of unauthorized material on WordPress.com are not from a WordPress.com site. We will not be able to process a DMCA complaint for non WordPress.com sites."
??? If anyone has insights on this matter, plese help!
Are you sure it is a Wordpress.com site and not a self-hosted Wordpress blog? There's a difference. Wordpress doesn't have any jurisdiction over self-hosted blogs as far as I know.
I see you already got the help you need, but I have a question. I was not ware that HP had a built in function for filing DMCA notices. Can you tell me how to access it? Thanks.
Yes, thank you! This is a marginally more helpful response..now on the obvious next question, where or how do I track down the proper medium to file aforementioned DMCA?
Thank you raggededge, for filling me in, now let's put our heads together and tackle this problem that is solely mine.
Thank you Dan!!
I read your hub, and followed your instructions. Went through "Kloth", then "Arin" and got the right contact information to the host. They emailed me back within minutes to tell me they would investigate and take appropriate action against the content thief..
Once again, thank you!!!!
You say that like I'm a recovering heroine addict, haha.
Hubs tab --> Copied hubs tab --> then there should be "file dmca button" next to the copied hub.
Michael, it would help others a lot if you would use the "reply" button to the post you are replying to instead of the one at the bottom of the screen. Hard to tell who you are talking to - if you go to the "threaded" view you'll see what I mean.
Thanks. As long as I've been here, there's still stuff I don't know!

There is so much of this going on that it may not be worthwhile to mention. Since I know that this site is not cooperative, I sent my DMCA complaint to Google. My hub is copied word for word with all the lovely photographs and even a link to another similar hub. It probably is my best hub with lots...

The site is w w w. car article. net/Found one (so far) of mine. Have already filed DMCA. I suspect the whole site is nothing but stolen car articles. And they've got AdSense ads.

It is in HP's interests to reassess the policy about DMCAs. For years we've been told hubbers are responsible for filing DMCAs about individual copyright infringements. But I've looked at the DMCA documentation and really can't see why.So here's my 6 top reasons why I believe HubPages should take...

I found some of my content copied on anothe site. I put the URL into the WHOIS site to find out the information. How do I find the email address of the domain registrant? If it isn't obviously listed there, does that mean that information isn't available? The site that has...

Perhaps this is already widely known, but I have just found most of my hubs copied in their entirety on hubinfo.netThere are literally thousands of our hubs there, all categorized, basically a cheap replica of hubpages. Is there anything to be done about such a site?

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 filed with Google. It is not hard, does not take a lot of time and you get...
