How To Write a Warning Letter To a Copyright Violator?
Warning letter is a previous step to report alleged copyright infringement authority. If someone willingly and unwillingly republishes your article then we should first send a warning letter, which should be written in polite language. Do not make any threats about infringement which cannot be validate. Because we have only 2 options, if copyright violator’s blog hosted on Google platform then we can easily remove content by complaining to Google DMCA and Google AdSense. And If the Blog is hosted to WordPress but using Google AdSense then we can complain about copyright violation to Google AdSense, as a result they will disable to Google AdSense account.
However this is hard step, but by sending a warning letter we can remove content from copyright violator’s Blog. For example purpose I have written a letter, just you have to change the bold text only.
