Subject: RE: Copyright warning - bloggers!
You might not be able to stop Rapidshare from hosting the files altogether, but they were very quick to drop the albums when I asked them to. They were also apologetic. They need to be told the URL of the blog where the link is, and probably have some assurance that the person telling them is the owner of the copyrighted material. Or working on behalf of the owner.

It's the blog site that is more of a problem than the file sharing site, as far as I can see. Google, who host many blog sites, seem to require notice in writing (so not an email) as well as a lot of substantive detail before they'll act, which is why I went directly to Rapidshare.
