as all the years webmaster world my last stop to find a solution after google and bing until almost insane.
This is the scenario - any pointers are welcome.
I have taken photos at a sport event, watermarked them and publish on my website xyz.com
Now i seen my images at a web presence of a well known scumbag ( in the sport i report about - he does steal for years).
The images are altered, watermark removed, re-branded to his fraud operation.
Now the fun part starts.
He is using Blogger as platform to publish where he runs his digital phamplet with the blogger URL as well he has a full .com domain and i-framed that blogger in there - you can get to him absically with 2 different URL's
Now within that blogger he has i-framed a CoverIt gizmo, one of this news-stream applications.
My images are in this coverit stream.
I send a DMCA take down notice to have my images removed to CoverIt as the descibe in their terms of service and they reply "Not our business" and send me the whois of blogger as well of the guys domain.
I called them up and they basically told me to not bother them and take a hike... very rude and unprofessional people.
Do i file a dmca now with Google / Blogger?
If i maximize my pics they are hosted at the CoverIt server....
if I only open the frame of the application / stream it's also coverIt
Thanks for any advise
