Let me introduc some ways to solve it:
1) If the page which infringed my copyrighted work can be searched by Google, ( It means Google indexed this file), I will send a writen notification to Google by fax.
The notice should use a special format. Go Google to get this format.
2) If the page on which site have Google AdSense (one site revenue way), you can notice Google AdSense support followed by the step 1. Then email to adsense-support@google.com.
3) If you have a lot of time, you can contact the site owner, to ask him or her to remove the pages infringed your works.
The results may vary.
