Briefly stated, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act is US law. It provides a mechanism for webmasters and site owners to get stolen copyrighted content removed from offending websites, no matter where in the world they are based. The reason it works so well is that all the major search engines are US based business eg Google.
So, you have found your copyrighted content from your website or Blog on another site. You've already sent off a polite DMCA Request to the Webmaster asking him to remove the infringing material but nothing happens.
The next step is to send a correctly formatted DMCA Request to the Hosting Company. Hosting companies are businesses such as Godaddy. If you do a search for 'Whois' you will find a number of sites that can provide the name and contact details of the hosting company.
