Stolen Content

What to do if your blog posts are stolen by a spam “scraper” site.

Update: some stolen content has been removed but zestead.com is still active and appears to be full of spam and scraped content.

We’ve had some reports of posts being republished without permission at my.zestead.com. If one of your posts has been published there without permission, and you are the copyright holder of the material in that post, you can send a DMCA notice to the following addresses. This information was obtained from Whois and is believed to be accurate at the time this post was written, but you should confirm it yourself before taking action.

my.zestead.com appears to be currently hosted on 205.209.125.247, a server managed by the web hosting company Host Department. Their DMCA email address is:

abuse@worldispnetwork.com

They do not provide specific instructions for submitting a DMCA request, so you should fill in and email a DMCA Notice to Host complaint. You must include all of the information as instructed there, including a copy of the declaration with your full name and contact information filled in. In particular your DMCA notice must identify the specific URL of the post or page where your content has been copied without permission. Remember that making a false declaration in a DMCA takedown notice is illegal.

Please note that the web hosting company merely manages the server on which that site is running; they are not responsible for its content and are probably unaware of its purpose.
