Today I found out that more than 100 pages of my informational website have been plagiarized. I already contacted the owner of the other site where my copy appears. I told him that if he doesn't take down my copy within 24 hours, I will contact my lawyer, BBB and his host. What else can I do?
I have not registered my site with the U.S. copyright office yet, but will do so tomorrow. I have more than 1,000 pages on my site and wonder how I can protect my work, which took me 4 years until now to create.
If somebody has had similar experiences, I would greatly appreciate any tips.
