Hi Everyone,

I really appreciate for this thread!

I want to share the details of the story with you. I’ve found a web site that has a good location on google search results, it’s been directly sharing our files and hosted by godady. Sent a DMCA and the site is suspended now!

I’d like to share my methods with you;

If you found a web site that directly shares your files from it’s own server space, you need to find it’s hosting first to send your DMCA . To do that; - go to http://www.iptools.com/ or a similar one - use “Resolve Host” tool - then use Whois Lookup (IP) tool - When you find the network name or hosting provider domain name - use “Abuse Contact Lookup” form to find the abuse contact address of the service provider

If you found your file on a download site; They usually hide their abuse contact address and wants you fill a DMCA form. Visit the web site and find the form, it might be in contact, abuse, dmca, support etc.

If you think the warez site that you found, generates income from google AdSense, use this form to report google https://support.google.com/adsense/bin/request.py?hl=en&contact_type=violation_report&rd=2 They usually reply back in about 10 days.

Windows users are lucky because they have freshkiller http://killer.freshface.cz/ thanks to freshface

Here is the format I use, have copied from the freshkiller and sending by manually for each link Download .DOC file

Envato’s article about DMCA http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Live/Knowledgebase/Article/View/114/0/how-do-i-claim-infringement-of-my-copyright-lodging-a-dmca-notice

Any additions, corrections are highly appreciated!

Please just keep fighting!

Amazing stmcan, thank you :)

Guys I highly recommend FreshKiller, it’s amazing. If you’re mac users you can try install windows on your macs for this or go to your friend with windows etc. When you have links it take you about 2-3min to send DMCA to all those portals.

@stmcan I found a site that I think is very surprising because almost all the themes from all the existing WordPress theme marketplaces provided by this site to download for free. I think we have to do something to this one.
