    Also with your entries if they are auto pulling the content you could always include a backlink to your site in your content.
    It took about 48 hours between submitting the ticket and resolving the situation.
    That's exactly what happened! The person is just auto copying my content with all my links leading to my site. So, I started publishing plenty of links in each post.
    In the end, the guy just did me a favour because I have traffic from his blog and lots of backlinks!

    Thanks for all this information; I'm glad to have read this thread! I have a friend with a news magazine type web site; I may point him to this thread and suggest he consider registering it with the U. S. Copyright office.

    There have been recent changes so reposting:

    If you need help with a claim/takedown order http://www.chillingeffects.org/search.cgi has lots of examples.

    Review http://www.google.com/dmca.html, http://info.yahoo.com/copyright/us/details.html, http://www.microsoft.com/info/cpyrtInfrg.htm, http://sp.ask.com/en/docs/about/copyright_iac.shtml, for DMCA claim procedures and generate DMCA Complaints ‘takedown orders’ for each.

    Proof all DMCA complaints for errors.

    The Takedown orders are quite simple to generate:

    1. Identify your copyrighted works (url)

    2. Identify the infringing material (url) and a search query reference for where they appear in that search engine's results... (if you can't find any reference in a search engine's archive for the alleged infringement - they can't do anything (but Google blogspot can as the host)

    3. Your contact info (email).

    4. Alleged Infringers contact info (possibly from blog - in this case if you can't locate that's OK because Google can internally))

    5. Include the following statement: "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."

    6. Include the following statement: "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."

    7. Sign the paper.

    8. Send the written communication - Fax, Register Mail, Courier (and where applicable email) all recipients at the same time.

    Google.com F: (650) 963-3255

    Yahoo.com F: (408) 349-7821 or eMail: copyright@yahoo-inc.com

    MSN.com F: (425) 936-7329 or eMail: jkweston@microsoft.com

    Ask.com mail to:

    IAC Search & Media
    Attention: General Counsel
    555 12th Street, Suite 500
    Oakland, CA 94607

    or use mailform: http://sp.ask.com/en/docs/about/feedback.shtml

    If you need visual help check http://www.chillingeffects.org/search.cgi for examples

    Yahoo & MSN will remove and not notify the alleged infringer Google will attempt to notify... but in all instances it will normally be removed from results within 48 hours. (You can also do Ask if you wish)

    THAT SAID BE ADVISED that the "alleged infringer" also has rights... they can counter-claim and then your only action thereafter is to commence court action... (in California) since that's where the alleged offense occured... and you'll need an attorney that can practice law in California, and before all that you need to apply for your copyright at http://www.copyright.gov/forms/
    You don't need to register your copyright - but there are enormous benefits for doing so.

    If you have any problems - I'm more than happy to comments "in public"... private consultation will cost money.
