    So I stole some website content from some random website.
    And the website owner contacted me within the week.
    Saying I must remove the content from my website.

    Man I got a lil scared.

    So the question is:
    How did he find me so quick?

    Ehm maybe some accidental trackbacks/pingbacks or he scans the web for any copies of his work.

    Yes I agree don't worry if you are outside of the USA or UK I had someone try to warn me about copying some content when I lived in China for 3 years mwahahahaha I never responded and nothing ever happened :D. If you are in the USA just change it around a little bit. I did a copyscape search for the sites I stole from and did a second copyscape search on my websites.....nothing showed up loooool. So just keep what you really like of his site, change it around a little bit and combine some what you really like from 2 or 3 other sites so they cannot say you stole it.

    They can always contact your host/affiliate programs. There are ways around it but why bother. I would report you and wouldn't think twice about it. I would offer you the chance to take it down, if you don't take it, you are either a highly skilled blackhatter or a dickhead

    This is some really good advice if you're copying other peoples websites and worried about the consquences. Change it up slightly and run it through copyscape.

    Yes, you should CHANGE THE CONTENT A BIT and do NOT copy and paste from website to website. Example:

    COPY content from target website
    PASTE into wordpad (no word)
    CHANGE CONTENT A LITTLE
    PASTE INTO YOUR WESBITE

    That is just dumb. Doesn't matter where you are, he can contact your host and you will get in trouble

    Contact the victims host and tell them that he has stolen content from your site and you would like it removed. Get in first :)

    Yep, Ive had this sort of crap happen before. It doesn't take long to sort out.

    So you want to steal a webmasters hard work?
    So you want to go on to cause them trouble so you can steal from them?
    You believe your lazy ass will be saving time this way?
    You want to scam for the sake of scamming?

    People ignore this thread, following it through will probably cost you more in the long run.

    Hey, if you are not DMCA'd, you're not trying hard enough.

    Also, you'll find that sites hosted OUTSIDE of USA are the ones who will DMCA you.

    At least that has been my experience, and I scraped HUNDREDS of relevant pages.

    - the ploy is:

    1 See the top 100 pages in google for the keywords you want to rank for
    2 Scrape the pages ( File - Save As - Complete Webpage )
    3 Post a link to your offer on each of those newly saved sites
    ( Picture links with an "ad" are best - of course use ALT tag to rank the image for the keywords, too )
    4 Put the whole folder on your domain
    5 Presto - now yor site is hot with content ( no pun )
    6 Visit all the new links
    7 Create a blog post with all the new links - keyword links, of course
    8 Ping the blog

    Watch your rank soar and the DMCA's roll in.

    geez there some lazy peeps here

    You can hire someone like a few bucks per article or page to get it rewritten

    Or use one of the rewriter scripys or software in the downloads section here

    Or do it manually to rewrite the article a bit as suggested

    Takes like 5-10 mins most times and will save a lot whole of trouble

    Yeah I had an autoblog that posted an article from some guy who got really pissed.. he was contacting my email directly, my webhost, who is email... I was not checking these email addresses regularly so it took me a few days to find them... By this time he was posting rude and threatening messages to my blogs comments and emails... lol

    Anyways I am not in UK or USA so I was hardly scared but I figure its easier to remove a single article than have some maniac writing emails to my webhost every day complaining.

    I would say remove the offending content if its only a small part of your website for a quiet life!

    A quick way to change the content is to translate it with google translate to german than french than back to english.

    I hereby convey to you the coveted "BLACKHAT TIP-OF-THE-WEEK" Medal, with the "Attitude" Cluster! (* See note below)

    Report the other guy, that is slick. It would take a huge amount of time to 'prove' who had what in what time period, and I doubt if most hosts would persevere through that mess.

    On the other hand, reportee and reporter would probably both have their hosting accounts closed. :D
