    Is it worth the trouble of filing a DMCA over a poem that has been copied? One of mine has been used on a few sites.

      Sir Dent, it's your work, you should protect it and get credit for it.

        Thank you for responding. I understand what you are saying. I am pondering on whether to file or not. I found the poem on 4 sites last night and emailed support for each one. One has already removed my poem but one has emailed me back wanting me to file a DMCA. I imagine the links I sent weren't good enough for them.

        By the way, the site that wants me to file a DMCA is MySpace.

          myspace is pretty major.  Your poem would get a lot of exposure.  You should file a dmca.  Besides this won't be the last time something like this will happen.  Your poems are obviously popular. You don't know where it might lead, it's a good idea to file a dmca in my opinion.

      All 'filing a DMCA' is is sending the takedown request with the appropriate assertion that you are the copyright holder.  They will have a form somewhere you need to fill out to request the takedown in the standardised manner with the legal declaration of ownership--so they can have it on file.

    You have convinced me. Both of you I mean. I appreciate your input and advice.

    Definitely file a DMCA if they request it, also attach a cease and desist notice.

    This is basically a letter or email entitled cease and desist which threatens legal action unless your intellectual property is removed.

    The DMCA is a pretty restricted tool, which is why most of the major companies file a Cease and Desist first, a DMCA second.
