A couple of weeks ago I complained to Yahoo!7 (Australia) regarding content from my website that was posted on Yahoo!7 Answers. I have previously written to Yahoo! Answers (on a number of occasions) and received an email from them to notify me that the copied material had been removed. However, Yahoo!7 replied only to thank me for my feedback and my comments. Over a week later, the copied content is still there. Any advice on what to do next?

There is a specific way of handling your issue. Yahoo should think about having a canned response for your situation. Finding how to handle a copyright situation usually involves clicking around the TOS or the Help section links of a search engine. The proper way to address copyright infringement is laid on in the Yahoo Terms of Service, article #26.
Go to [au.yahoo.com...] then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the link for Terms of Service. Article #26 is titled, NOTICE AND PROCEDURE FOR MAKING CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT. Follow those directions.

I contacted them via email using the format that they set out in their "NOTICE AND PROCEDURE FOR MAKING CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT" guidelines. On previous occasions this has worked. Since it hasn't this time, I'll trying mailing them a letter. Thanks for your suggestions.
