how to handle a blog that stole content from me

  1. This weekend I noticed that a blog hosted on WordPress.com copied a post I wrote for my own blog, and posted it as if they wrote it themselves. They provided no attribution or credit whatsoever. I tried contacting them, but their blog has no author information or way of contacting them. When I added a comment to the post in question, it was removed a day later. What can I do about this? What is WordPress.com's policy regarding blogs that infringe copyrights?

    The post on my blog:
    http://blog.danielsroka.com/art/art-is-not-essential.htm

    The blog that copied my post:
    http://artcafe.wordpress.com/2007/03/30/is-art-essential/

    Thanks for the help,
    Dan

    P.S. I host my blog on my own server using WordPress.org's software, but am posting here because it involves abuse by a wordpress.com blog.

  2. Email to dmca ( at ) automattic ( dot ) com would be best

    For reference: http://automattic.com/dmca/

  3. Thank you. I went ahead and did that.

  4. Going to mark this as resolved since the blog here got ToSed.
