CEASE AND DESIST LETTER
Dear First Last,
It has come to our attention that you have made an unauthorized use of our copyrighted work entitled Insert the name of the infringed work (the "Work") in the preparation of a work derived therefrom. I have reserved all rights in the Work, which was first published in the publication date of the infringed work on the URL of original work, and I have registered the copyright. Your work entitled Insert the name of the infringing work and which appears on your web site at the URL of infringing site, is essentially identical to the Work and clearly used the Work as its basis. Give few examples that illustrate direct copying and/or unfair use.
You neither asked for nor received permission to use the Work as the basis for Insert the name of the infringing work nor to make or distribute copies of it. Therefore, I believe you have willfully infringed my rights under 17 USC 101, et seq. and could be liable for statutory damages as high as $100,000. I demand that you immediately cease the use and distribution of all infringing works derived from the Work, and all copies of it, and that you deliver to me all unused, undistributed copies of it, or destroy such copies immediately, and that you desist from this or any other infringement of my rights in the future.
If I have not received an affirmative response from you by Date indicating that you have fully complied with these requirements, I shall consider taking the full legal remedies available to rectify this situation.
