I can't remember how to file a DMCA. Where do I find the form? I think it used to be attached to the alert on our articles but now it just explains what it is. Someone copy and pasted my article on their website and I've asked them nicely to take it down but they won't.
Use whois.net to find their webhost. Go to their website and see if there's a way of contacting them. Most have an 'abuse' link. That should take you to a form or email address.
If the webhost is not available, send it to the registraar. They will often forward the complaint on to the relevant place.
Then paste this in to the form or email:
I am writing to you to avail myself of my rights under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). This letter is a Notice of Infringement as authorized in §512 of the U.S. Copyright Law.
1. The copyrighted work at issue is the text that appears on:
[location of your article on HP]
2. The URLs where my copyrighted material is located include:
[location of the infringing page]
3. My contact information is as follows:
[your full name]
4. I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
5. I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
[your full name]
I would also send it to the site owner if there is a contact address.
Thanks so much raggededge...Your wisdom makes my life easier. I appreciate your help.

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...

Usually I find a couple pieces of stolen article copy on different sites. Today, it's more than enough to make me comment here. HP notifies us, adds the complaint link, and the complaint file cut-paste copy but little else to build a brick wall against content thieves. For every click...

Does anyone know how to contact a site with no contact details available on the site? I want to contact sarenvers.com with a DMCA complaint as they have stolen one of my hubs. It's listed as being written by a James Jackson, but when I click on his name I just go to more of his articles. I've tried...
