DMCA About to be Sent

Alrighty, having finished up my draft DMCA notice, I’m about ready to send it, as soon as I check with my parents—last-minute checks are always good. I copied the URLs from Blogger’s dashboard in a fraction of the time it took to pull them off the plagiarizing site, and even threw in the original MSN/Windows Live Spaces addresses of some of my older posts for good measure.

Having completed my first letter, I will now bask in the satisfaction that comes from preparing one’s first legal document, and shall shudder with fear, once I send it, until I receive a response. As always, stay tuned for more details. This particular topic should remain quite interesting, especially since I found another site that has copied an excerpt.

I really won’t worry too much about the excerpt sites, I don’t think. As far as I know, they’re providing perfectly legal content extracts with links back to the original source, and I have no case for an infringement claim. If nothing else, they contribute (very little) to my Google PageRank.
