A nice copyright story…

I was Googling yesterday and saw two articles with strangely similar titles. One on my site and one on Scribd. It was pretty obvious it was a copy of my article. It even ended with my usual “Hope this helps. Regards Tim…” message…

Towards the bottom of all pages on Scribd is this link:


Clicking on it takes you to this page:


Clicking on the “Submit a DMCA takedown request” link at the to-right presents you with a template takedown requests, you just have to cut & paste a couple of URLs into.

So I sent the request and a few minutes later I had a response saying the article had been removed. Brilliant!

Thank you very much Scribd… :)
