I have found some copyrighted content on Youku.com
As you know, Youku is a Web Streaming site providing a service similar to Youtube. Its a Chinese website and I think most of the traffic to Youku.com comes from China.
Now, I want to file a DMCA notice to Youku to remove the allegedly infringed content from their site.
There is a link here:
You can download a Microsoft Word Document from there, fill the details and then send them an email.
However, what makes me wonder is, the entire web page is in Chinese, the Word Document's Contents are in Chinese, the terms of Service and Rules are written in Chinese.
I do not think they are really going to take any action if a copyright infringement notice is filed because they have no instructions for English Speaking Users.
Or they expect you to use an online Translator like Google for this purpose?
Anyway, I am going to fill the details in Word Document and send Youku an email however wanted to know if someone has any experience with filing DMCA notices on Youku or aware of the kind of response they have to copyright infringement complaints?
After searching on Google, I came across one article where someone mentioned that as a result of filing a copyright infringement notice, Youku just blocked the videos in US while they could still be accessed from other countries.
