    If you want to scrape, use CalPop

    Looks like DMCA go unanswered and phone calls get directed to a 3rd party call center that are NOT CalPop data centers. It has been weeks and multiple DMCA notices go unanswered. Scraper sites running on their IP's have stolen copyrighted material. I know CalPOP monitor these forums. I can only hope they do the right thing before we have to go through legal.

    Have you tried sending the take down notices via certified mail to the snail mail address:
    600 W. 7th St. Third Floor Los Angeles, CA 90017
    That usually gets people's attention.
    Be sure to give the exact URL on their server for material in question.

    Are you saying some sites on their hosting use your copyrighted materials?

    Yes. That's exactly what scraping/autoblogs/whatever are

    Send a certified letter, if they don't respond to that or do something about it, hire a lawyer. I believe they are legally obligated to do so when a certified letter is sent.

    Act of scraping itself probably isn't but if you steal an entire site's content that might be infringement of some sort

    I suppose in this situation web hosting company is only the one who make decision if allow that on own servers or not and end user has nothing to do about that or change something.

    You've caught my attention. Did you submit a ticket? If so, can you message it to me. Thanks.

    There are numerous companies on the 3rd Floor, not just CalPop.
