    I have left replies to the person on your website, but he hasn't removed the article yet. If the article isn't removed, I will be forced to report this site:

    I am writing to you to avail myself of my rights under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). This letter is a Notice of Infringement as authorized in ยง512 of the U.S. Copyright Law.

    1. The copyrighted work at issue is the text that appears on:


    2. The URLs where my copyrighted material is located include:


    3. My contact information is as follows:

    [ email redacted, do not post that here ]

    4. I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

    5. I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

    MAYJOR Johnson

    All we do is support the WordPress software here, we have no control over what anyone does with it.

    You'll need to contact the hosting provider of the site in question to file a DMCA complaint.

  3. WordPress.org does not providing hosting for sites, it provides the software for other people to use their own sites on their own hosts. WordPress's philosophy and bill of rights permit people to use WordPress software for any reason they want, without any enforcement over legality or illegality. We leave that up to the web hosts. In cases of theft, abuse, harassment, or other such behavior, your best recourse is to contact their web host directly. You can use WHOIS to determine where they're hosted, as well as resources like http://www.whoishostingthis.com to find relevant information.
