Second, once you know with 100% certainty they understand they have violated your copyright, yet refuse to respond or stop, you need to shut them down by eliminating their ability to do business!
Send them an email with a carbon copy sent to their Internet Service Provider (ISP), their credit card processor, their web hosting company, and even company that sold them their domain name.
Finally, follow this email up with a hard copy letter to each party sent via registered mail. In email and letter detail exactly how they have blatantly violated your copyright and you want them to desist immediately.
By taking this approach you can often just bypass offending party because companies enabling them to transact business don't want any trouble. If you can show copyright violation they will shut perpetrator down to avoid getting sued themselves.
Though not foolproof, this strategy can help you when facing down a blatant online copyright violator. Just remember to act quickly, thoroughly and don't hesitate to contact your attorney for advice.
