About DCMA, I sent a letter to a server wich hosted a duplicated site of mine, and they took around 2 months to remove the content. And I am not sure if it is only for American sites.
Most sites that copy content will NOT bother to listen to your requests. If they did this, it would destroy their business plan!
The whole point of the DMCA with Google is to get them out of search results so you can get your spot in the rankings back. If you want their content removed though, bypass the webmaster and go to their web host with your DMCA.
