When stolen content is found on another person's site is that the recommended approach - to notify Yahoo search?
What is the address for their spam reports?
We've filed DMCA's with one of our competitors who has stolen a ton of our informative text - he went through and changed some of the words but about halfway down the page he stopped changing words. We're thinking of filing DMCA's with Yahoo/Google/MSN to have his site/content removed, but, the problem is that, from the research I've done on Google DMCA complaints, if he protests the removal they'll put it all back up and we have 14 days to sue him. I'm not sure we want to spend the money on such a suit...
Also, the concern is that he might then turn around, pull additional text off our site and then file DMCA complaints with the search engines against us... We could protest them (and we have actual filings with the Copyright officer to back us up), but, it would still be a hassle.
Anyone out there ever filed DMCA's with Google and Yahoo? How did it work? Did the other party "protest" the removal of their content or did it go smoothly?
