If you write articles for websites, or manage an online publication, you probably have had your content stolen. After it is taken once, the reposting takes on a life of its own.
You may have created a song, video, image, animation, or photographs that gets copied to other sites. It is possible to have the copied content removed from offending sites.
We use a number of tools to find websites with your content, then take action. We can also work to stop copyright infringement
from happening in the future. Although there is no fool proof way of stoping it, we can help to minimize damages.
First we search the web for duplicates of your content. Different methods apply based on the type of content and media being authored. Once we find your content, we reach out to the publisher (i.e. website owner) and notify them of a possible complaint under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
More often than not, the correspondence that comes from our respected law firm is enough for them to act. If, however, they fail to respond in and appropriate time frame, we take the next steps.
These can range from:
- Filing a DMCA complaint
- File a law suit for damages
- Encouraging Google to black list the site
After we resolve your copyright infringement case, we will provide a number of methods to reduce the chances for this to re-occur.
