Thankfully none of mine is in there, I suggest you to set up google alerts with the name of your games in order to catch pirates.

The important thing is that you should send a DMCA takedown notice:
http://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/appstorenotices/
https://support.google.com/legal/troubleshooter/1114905?rd=1/troubleshooter/1114905?rd=1

I scrap the net once per week, to extort money from pirates, they are one of my main sources of income

:D

(basically you need to send them a properly worded email, and they'll personally remove your stuff or pay up what you are asking for)

Hello, I'm Felipe Budinich, representing X, owners of Y.

As of 17 of November 2014, your sites are currently under violation of X's copyright. ( evidence here: http://www.funnygames.ph/game/x.html )

We'll be issuing a DMCA takedown notice to your hosting provider (Amazon IP: 175.41.142.248 ), and thus your sites will be taken down.

Additionally your company violated our game's DRM, and thus you are liable to have your sites delisted from google searches by the second takedown notice we'll send to Google, and other web search providers.

We will pursue action to assure the maximum amount of damages allowed by international law, or your company may want to settle with us outside of court instead, you can either:

1.- Remove the game from your site by monday 24 of November 2014. And we'll pursue no further action.

2.- Or acquire a non-exclusive license for commercial exploitation of web version of the game for $X dollars to be paid by monday 24 of November 2014 to this paypal account: paypal@account.com

Best regards.

@Voldem Thanks for posting this. I didn't even think of this kind of thing happening.

@FelipeBudinich Thanks for all this information and a sample of the kind of letter you send out to offenders.
