Official DMCA Copyright Infringement Removal Request

Tech Tips by Donald Burleson

It's very easy to steal content on the web, and the theft of copyrighted property has become epidemic, with entire web sites being stolen and re-published.  In this case, respected author, Dr. Timothy Hall had his entire domain taken and re-published under another person's name. 

This case is especially onerous because the criminal took Dr. Hall's resume as his own, removing Dr. Hall's name and replacing it with their name.  Even identity theft can be very difficult to enforce with an overseas web site, and the bad guys know this.

Here are my notes on enforcing your copyrights on the web.

Locating copyright violations on the Internet

Detection services such as and are a great way to find stolen copyrighted property, as are random Google searches.

Reporting a DMCA copyright infringement

If the web host is located in the USA then the hosting company is bound by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. ?? 512, 1201-1205, 1301-1332; 28 U.S.C. - 4001) and all United States web service providers are required not to facilitate in the publication of infringing material.

If the infringing content is hosted overseas you cannot use a DMCA removal request, but you can report the infringing page with the Google report a spam result web form.  You may not be able to have the infringing content removed, but you may be able to have the pages removed from the Google web index.

Most web hosting companies want an "official" notice that they are hosting infringing content.  I'm not a lawyer, but I've had success with a notice like the DMCA copyright infringement demand letter below.
