    Not impressed with having my articles reprinted in full on this site. Are yours there?

      It looks like a platform where people contribute 'their' articles. There is a clear notice on their ToS:

      "If you believe that material located on or linked to by Archive Maya violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify Nasir in accordance with Nasir Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") Policy."

    For sites like these I usually just contact Google and use their copyright infringement notice.

    If I'm feeling particularly narked I look up the whosis and note the domain name registrar and then serve them with a notice too. They're liable once served with a cease and desist.
