What To Do When Your Pictures, Text, and Videos are Stolen Online

For years I've written and ranted about websites committing blatant copyright violations. Some of you have been supportive of my rants, thank you. This morning I am madder than ever about a website stealing blog posts. That's because this morning I found a website that was not only stealing my writing, it was stealing my pictures too. Including a picture of my daughter. The worst part is that the offending website is placing R-rated to X-rated advertisements next to the stolen pictures and posts.

Rather than just making this into another "Richard is ranting about copyright" post, I would like to share what you can do if you find yourself in a similar position. I made a video to illustrate the process the that I use to deal with blatant copyright violations by spammy websites. The process is outlined in written form here
