This falls under theft of intellectual property, and as all content writers know, the process is to find the copies, file a Notice of Infringement under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, follow up, and so on. This routine is tedious at best, and overwhelming at worst.
While automated filing of these notices is illegal, I have been experimenting with various methods of automatically finding the copies, as well as eliminating steps to make the filing easier. My results have been published on InfoBarrel, and I am experimenting with even more automation to make the filing of DMCA Takedown Notices easier (without paying for it!). Try it out, and if you have more ideas for automation, be sure to leave a comment and let me know!
