often a quick email simply stating your intentions to place a dmca and seek damages if the content is not removed is enough. You must send a cc to their hosts as well. Its important you cc and not bc the hosts as it helps if they know their hosts will be involved. Oh and of course where in the world you and the copied stuff is matters so i always throw in catch all terms like 'Intellectual Property'.
