I've posted this in the Google section since they're the SE I'm having a problem with, Bing etc are all ok at the moment.
I'm trying to wrap my head around this, is there anything I can do in Europe to force people to take down my articles and copied code and widget pages?
Case 1 - UK site UK hosted .co.uk
Case 2 - Italian site, Italian hosted .com
Both these sites have risen to the top of the SERPs over the last few weeks debacle using my stuff.
As I understand it the DMCA does not apply.
Does the European Copyright Directive apply or is this simply a huge mish-mash?
