It's all very well claiming that your copyright has been infringed but if there is no proof of ownership, you do not have a leg to stand on. Also, unlike a novel or a poem, your website content changes over time - it's the nature of the beast. How can you claim copyright on something which is constantly changing?

Why use the copyright symbol when you can use one of our FREE eye catching banners?
Placing the banner in the footer of your home page is an absolutely brilliant solution to the problem of copyright theft. After seeing this website, any potential perpetrators would suddenly lose their 'copy and paste' skills
If the website owner refuses to remove stolen content, then the Digital Millennium Copyright Act otherwise known as the DMCA can be used to notify Hosting Companies and Search Engines of the illegal use of copyrighted material.
Even if the offending website is on a different continent, worldwide copyright protection is possible through the mechanism of DMCA Takedowns.
The search engines and the hosting company are legally obliged to remove stolen copyright content from their servers when informed of the infringement. Not to do so leaves them at risk of expensive litigation.
Sometimes, just getting your copyrighted content removed from an offending website is just not enough. May be you are angry, upset and enraged at the blatant theft of your material, or perhaps the blasé attitude of the offender has really vexed you.
WebsiteCop, working with our associated solicitors, attorneys and lawyers from around the world have the perfect solution for you.
We issue the perpetrator with a Retrospective License Agreement which imposes a fee for the illegal use of your work. It also includes our expenses and hourly costs.
The perpetrator can choose not to pay but then faces the threat of legal action through the courts, trying to defend a case which he ultimately cannot possibly win.
It is a strategy which we have applied on many occasions with great success. The key to a successful conclusion is to prove ownership beyond any shadow of doubt.
We have used this solution to enforce penalties for the illegal use of a single graphic, to the duplication of substantial parts of an entire website.
