Having problems with DMCA

 11:29 pm on Jul 27, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hello everyone,

I am trying to send DMCA takedown notices for multiple infringements of one image. The infringements have been perpetrated by multiple culprits on various websites and I have had mixed success with hosts and providers.

At the moment I have hit the following snags and was wondering if anyone can shed any light.

    1. DMCA to Squidoo:
I just can't contact these people. I have tried contacting contacts in whois information, Alexa contact information, Squido email support, used onsite forms without success and more. I did receive one auto acknowledgment from Squidoo support on the 13/07/2012 EST and it is now the 28th and there have been no followups made by Squidoo.

So my question regarding Squidoo is: who can I complain to about Squidoo? I understand under the act, an agent's contact must be made available by hosts and other providers for purposes of receiving takedown notices.

    2. The second issue is with a protected domain services provider based in the USA:

I emailed this provider after hitting a brick wall trying to find the hosting DNS server. They responded but only offered to their paid service to generate and send a notice. Aren't they also bound by the DMCA? Or can they profit on this?

Thank you.
I am just about to take a look at it now.

Great resource. I'll give those contacts a try. Thanks again.

I used to try to contact sites but it was usually non-effective. I simply fill out at DMCA at Google and they sort things out. If the thief sits on blogger they remove contact within +/-3 days. If elsewhere, it takes a 2-3 weeks.
