How to File a DMCA Take down Notice
If a blogger steals your blog content, the only way you can force him to takedown those contents is simply by reporting him to Google’s DMCA.
DMCA was formed to help bloggers, website owners, photographers etc. fight plagiarism. Are your contents being plagiarized? Then you need to file a DMCA complaint against those sites.
How can I report sites that are stealing my contents?
If you report a blog created on the blogger platform, Google will easily remove the contents directly because they are the owner of the platform and they have access to it.
But if the blog you’re reporting for plagiarism is on another platform like WordPress, you will have to file for the URL to be removed from Google search…
