Copyright Infringment -> Someone stole my work

Post by BigBob on May 31st 2013, 8:39 pm

I'd like to know how I can get a forum taken down because it copied my logo and company name, I tried contacting the owner of the forum but its been inactive since 2011, however, it shows up on the first page in google, hurting my google ranking, etc.

Is there any other way to get it taken down? I tried submitting the litigation app thing but it kept saying "invalid image" when it was a fine image..


Thanks

To report a forum use the following link

Edit What do you mean image!? you just paste the link of the site in the box.

it has to be a direct image link only.
if you like send me the image of the screen shot you want to send in the report and i will send you the proper image link back.

See it is a little confusing now because image shack requires people to have an account now in order to get direct image links, so you basically have to take the direct image link out of the bbcode tags with [img] tags for the thumbnail. A lot of people do not realize that the direct image link is also in the bbcode you just have to take it from there.

So if you dont know what i mean just send me the image and i will upload and send you the correct image link back.
