    Sadly, this type of response is not altogether atypical of a lot of sites. They get mixed up with bad authors and, rather than admit they got taken, sweep it under the rug.

    Still, I think it is a good thing that the work was removed. Many will simply fight you tooth and nail and try not to remove the works at all. The good news is that this is why laws such as the EDEC and the DMCA were passed, to help Webmasters and authors protect their work.

    Hopefully though, this will be the end of it. I know it isn’t a happy ending, but it has ended better than a lot of cases I’ve read about.

    If there is anything that I can do to help, please do not hesitate to drop me a line.
