Is there an email form for filing a DCMA report?

    It seems like I filed one with Google this way and now I can't find it anywhere. I tried searching the forums, which is where I found it the first time.

    My highest earning hub was stolen this week by no fewer that SEVEN other sites, five of them at FLIXYA, one at a site that I never can find the administrator for, and the other on a blog.

    It's bad enough when it happens once, but this is total crap. sad

      Pam - You can send an email complaint to google blogger, but not adsense. Oddly enough I wrote a hub about this not long ago. i am constantly getting my stuff copied - but you can file a bulk complaint. The Address and FAX number is in the hub. I don't have a fax so I do them in bulk in writing . Pain in the ass - and I think Misha is probably right that it is not worth it> i do get some satisfaction seeing the google ads disappear though. smile

        Thanks Mark. I guess I could print up a stack of the letters and do the same thing--fill out and sign a bunch of them when the mood strikes me. Thanks for the link to your hub too. smile

    Well, I can never get it straight. The copyright infringement form. Christoph Reilly posted a link to an email form in a forum a few months back and I can't find it. Google just gives you an address.

    Plus, do I have to file seven of these things?

    When it was just one theft at a time it annoyed me but if half a dozen sites or gonna hit my stuff at once, I don't know if it's even worth filing or  arguing. Flixya is a menace. They are my #1 source of thieves--I'm FOREVER getting stuff ripped off by Flixya users. It's constant. smile

    What would you do Misha?

    Frankly I don't care much. I find it not worth the effort. I never filed a single complaint. That said, i am not getting robbed on such a scale, so I don't know how i would react if I were you. smile

    The best you can do I think is to stuff your hubs with self-directing links. If they steal them in all entirety, you get free backlinks. smile

    Oh, and it is DMCA.

      That's a good idea, thanks. I'm beginning to feel it isn't worth it so stuffing the hubs with backlinks might be the best option, really.
