I'm new to filing DMCA requests and had a question for all of you experts.
In an effort to recover a site from panda, we've run our site through copyscape and have been finding all of the other sites that have stolen our content over the years. Some sites have just taken snippets, while some have taken full articles with images and everything. Some of these provide links back to us, though most don't. Which of these should I be filing DMCA requests against?
Also, what about ehow.com? Some of their pages have copied almost word for word some of our articles. Some of these articles have links to us and some do not. Should I be filing DMCA's against them (or other larger sites like ehow) or does that not seem to help at all? What about the articles that have copied, but provide a link? Is it beneficial to just leave it and have the link back? Or what if they mention us as a reference, but do not provide a link?
