Currently trying to purge the Internet of a network of spam blogs using scraped content from my and other sites to manipulate SE results. Having some success both via spam reports to the major blog sites, and DMCA notices with reference to my content.
However, one particular host is holding me back. Despite what I consider to be clear evidence of deliberate and persistent copyright theft (these people are not smart. They've copied text ads from my site, and copyright notices from others) I'm being asked to send in DMCA notice after DMCA notice - we're talking probably thousands of urls, over dozens of subdomains on six domains.
By this point other hosts have all shut these people down - but in this case, we just seem to be proceeding on a page by page basis.
Bearing in mind that although the host is US based, I'm not and actually taking legal action is not feasible, what are my options to speed this up? Do I just have to continue sending them in, a few urls at a time? Or can I just word it as 'All AAAA-owned content hosted on the domains YYYY.com, PPP.net and EEEE.cn?
Similarly, the host in question is sending the DMCA notices to their subscriber and giving them 72 hours to remove the content - which they do. But shouldn't the host be removing the content themselves (even if that means shutting the domain down)? If not, is 72 hours reasonable?
Advice appreciated, TIA.
But that might not be all that easy to orchestrate, of course.
Is there an organization that regulates hosts to which someone could report something like this? There must be, but I don't know.
A DMCA dont work, talking to Hosting dont work, then I would be pist, be cause you Asked in good faith, that you will get a possitive responce.
Now its time to hur the person, contact ad companies which is listed on the site, that works.
Anyway, since posting this (maybe they read it, and do care) they seem to have had a bizarre change of policy - all I need to do is mention a domain and they close it down, with no need for DMCA forms.So one got closed down, I tried my luck with the next five and they're also gone. Subdomains are still there though, so I've sent them a long list of those . . .
They'll probably get sued by their subscriber, but somehow I don't care.
The spammers are actually using dozens of installs of a a very hackable version of wordpress. If I weren't an honest man . . .
