Hi, I recently experienced content theft. The website that reposted by entry without permission, Desitnary, has no contact information. All the forums I have read say complaining to its host, Unified Layer, has been totally worthless. I don’t know what to do and haven’t read anything that says how WordPress can help me because its not hosted by WordPress.com. Anyone have ideas? Thanks so much.
The blog I need help with is kadubbs916.wordpress.com.
Woops, the website is Destinary.
We cannot help you with any site that’s not hosted by WordPress.com. Only the web host hosting the site in question can act on a properly filed DMCA notice.
So I can still fill out a DMCA notice? I thought those were only for WordPress related issues. Okay, thanks.
I tried to file a DMCA notice, but wordpress would not accept it, as expected. How do I file a DMCA notice against Unified Layer then?
You file a DMCA take down notice with the web host that hosts the site in question.
Yes file a DMCA with the host – they are required to respond to them
some of the info below is specific to WordPress.COM hosted sites – but all relevant

If you’re feeling really mean, this should also help http://drinkscoaster.com/2013/01/02/whine-journalism-and-how-to-bring-the-splashback/ (thanks @raincoaster)
So…the contact information of the thief and the host are no where to be found online. I’m at a loss.
Do a whois on the domain name – that will give you the host name – file the DMCA with the host
I’ll give it a try. Thank you :)
You be welcome & good luck
