Rather than send a takedown notice. I sent a very polite message, requesting that they credit the artist and my website as the source. I sent 10 emails last night, so far I have received 4 responses, all of whom, agreed to link back to the source.
I personally find that quite amazing. I wasn't expecting such a good response, but it's certainly a promising start.
If we were credited for even 1/4 of the stolen content from our website, we'd gain thousands of inbound links.
