Dear Elisangela,

I am writing this open letter to you today regarding the written content you have used for your online company named Elgos.co.uk.

I was informed that my written content had been plagiarised and your domain name was given to me so I could take further action. After months of in-depth research, skilled writing and continuous efforts to set up and maintain an online business, I am repulsed to see my content and website layout plagiarised by you, Elisangela Gomes.

If your ambition is to become an established copywriter, I strongly advise that you learn how to carry out relevant research and produce fresh content from scratch in order to reflect your style and not mine. I am flattered of course but I am more disgusted by the dishonesty of your company image and lack of respect for other companies in the same industry.

You are using work to which I own the copyright and have taken credit for it whilst causing confusion as to whom the original author of the work is.

Your use of my work is unauthorised and such infringement is a direct violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and International Copyright Law. All copyrightable aspects of Word4Word Services are copyrighted under United Kingdom copyright law and have been since July 2014.

I'd like to inform you that I've made copies of your unlawful actions to preserve as evidence and should you fail to co-operate at this stage, I shall consider taking the full legal remedies available to rectify this situation.

I demand that you immediately cease the use and distribution of the work and all copies of it, that you remove any further works you may have stolen and that you desist from this or any other infringement of my rights in the future.

If I have not received proof of compliance from you by Monday, June 15, 2015, I will be contacting my lawyer and/or your site's administrators. I will also become entitled to use your failure to comply as evidence of "willful infringement" and seek monetary damages and equitable relief for your copyright infringement.

I await your response.
