Copyright Cease and Desist
Dear [name of infringer]
It has come to my attention that you have made an unauthorized use of my copyrighted
work entitled [name of work] (the "Work") in the preparation of a work derived therefrom.
I have reserved all rights in the Work, which was first published on [date] in [name of
publication][, and I have registered the copyright].
Your work entitled [name of infringing work] and which appears [where infringing work
has appeared] is essentially identical to the Work and clearly used the Work as its basis.
You neither asked for nor received permission to use the Work as the basis for [name of
infringing work] nor to make or distribute copies of it. Therefore, I believe you have
willfully infringed my rights under 17 U.S.C. Section 101 et seq. and could be liable for
statutory damages as high as $150,000 as set forth in Section 504(c)(2) therein.
I demand that you immediately cease the use and distribution of all infringing works
