Beat Web Thieves at Their Own Game
How to Get Your Stolen Intellectual Property
Removed from the 'Net Without Hiring a Lawyer

To Victims - and Future Victims - of Theft on the Web ...

"How Would YOU Feel ..."

... if you were surfing the Web and suddenly saw an exact copy of something you created, and to which you own the legal rights of use, on someone else's web site? This includes, but is not limited to ...

  • YOUR Articles

  • YOUR Web Site Designs

  • YOUR Web Site Copy

  • YOUR Sales Letter Copy

  • YOUR Ebooks or Reports
  • YOUR Ad Copy

  • YOUR Software

  • YOUR Other Products

  • YOUR Graphics & Images

  • YOUR Newsletters & Ezines

"What Would You DO?"

How would you claim your copyrighted property? Do you realize you do HAVE copyright protection?

Most folks don't understand copyright protection and ownership because they believe all works must be registered with the U.S. Copyright Office in order to be considered protected. In reality, it is advisable to copyright your work through the Copyright Office, but it is NOT REQUIRED in order to establish ownership over the work itself.

Nevertheless, you should be prepared and ready to act swiftly when (not "if") your copyrights are abused! You can also learn every detail about protecting your copyrights BEFORE they are stolen.

Everything is much easier if you have followed simple directions for protecting your intellectual property in the first place. It DOES take more than a few legal documents posted on your site, but the process is still quite easy! You just have to know what that process is!

"State of the World Wide Web"

I'm jl scott, Founder and former Director of the International Council of Online Professionals (iCop™). I am the current Director of Chamber of Commerce - on the Web.

But, this is about iCop.™ Members of iCop™ displayed a seal on their web sites showing they were members of our professional organization.

I spent many hours over the years tracking down, and dealing with, thieves who believed they could simply pirate that seal and put it on their own web sites - without our authorization.

The goal of iCop™ was to honor those online business owners who use the highest degree of professionalism and business ethics. We had a better than excellent reputation in that our members displayed exactly those qualities.

However, sometimes I wonder if it's possible for any organization to make a dent in cleaning up the internet. So many scams - so many "business owners" who have no intention of treating their customers with anything other than contempt - so much BS ... And, so much theft!

I am constantly asked to help folks who have had their intellectual property stolen - and used - online! I know they do need help. I'll admit - it literally took me YEARS of trial and error to learn how to handle this successfully!

"This Can - and Probably WILL - Happen to YOU!

In just a short period of time, I have known three online business owners who have had their web sites stolen! Their entire web sites - good GRIEF!

Unfortunately, the theft itself is only the beginning of the problem. One victim was advised by several people to, "just leave it alone ... let it go."

In a pig's wazoo! For one thing - why do we bother to put a copyright mark on our work if it isn't going to mean anything?

For another - she could soon find her own products stolen right along with the site design.

If your intellectual property is stolen - you need to get that stolen material OFF the Web!

    In one of the instances mentioned above, the product WAS actually stolen - right along with the entire web site - and was being sold by the thief. He even used the same credit card processor as the real owner!

In this case, you would not only need to get your product back into your possession, you would need to put this guy out of business!

In addition to all this, the thief then proceeded to market the product using "spam." Is this something you should just "leave alone?" I don't think so!

A thief is a thief is a thief. This person isn't going to have an ounce of ethics. You can bet you're dealing with someone whose reputation will soon be in the toilet. Do you want your property associated with this? Believe me, sooner or later, it WILL rub off on YOU!

In this case, the thief's web host REFUSED to ban the stolen site. Even with undeniable evidence that the owner had both his domain name and his site up first! Even though the thief had been reported for "spam" by an outside source! What do to next?

You Need to Know How to FORCE that Web Host to Cooperate!

Even when the web host cooperates, the job isn't finished. In fact, your job starts before something is stolen. And, it takes more - a whole lot more - than simply posting the proper legal documents on your web site! I'll guarantee you - thieves don't read those documents!

It, also, isn't over just because one web host shuts the pirate down. He could simply get a new web host and put it all back up.

Now granted, getting rid of this guy can take some work, energy and stamina on the part of the victim. But, let it go?

Well, I suppose you could. But, how much are your web site - your products - and your reputation - worth to you?

They're worth a lot, I'm sure! But, can you afford an attorney to deal with this for you? If you can - and if you want to hire an attorney - great! But, it isn't necessary!

    Remember, I dealt with this on nearly a monthly basis when thieves pirated the iCop™ Seal. The job always got done to my satisfaction, and I have yet to hire an attorney to do it for me! I've become an expert at dealing with online thieves!

I could probably make a lot of money - charging much less than an attorney whose fees could run into the thousands of dollars - by doing this for others. But, I don't have the time. I have an organization to run. The truth is, you don't need me to do it for you, either, because YOU can ...
