Also, with the registered material, I can threaten lawsuits with punitive as well as compensatory damages for any infractions.
And what can you do when the thief is located in Russia, Indonesia or Vietnam? A lot of my content has been copied by people in those countries.
Google, Panda and scraped content - what are you doing?

What makes me laugh is that most of the scrapers actually link back to us as the original source.

Copied content, regardless of Google Panda, is yours if original and you add a canonical tag:
I reserve the right to make as much a nuisance of myself as I have time to become. In past years, this has included (but is not limited to) phoning your place of business to discuss the matter, firing off emails to your management, issuing DMCA takedown requests to your internet service provider to have your offending pages removed, issuing DMCA takedown requests to Google to have your offending pages removed from the search engine (they’ve just put the whole process online; it’s amazingly easy now), calling you out as a douchebag on Facebook and Twitter, and posting screenshots of your theft alongside screen shots of my pages... Note to newspaper, television station, magazine, radio and other media websites: I am no longer accepting “Sorry, the intern did it” as a valid excuse. I got no fewer than SIX of those last year, which finally clued me in that it’s the industry standard “dog-ate-my-homework” response. If the first thing you teach your interns isn’t “Don’t Steal Content” then you don’t deserve to have interns in the first place. Period.
