: I had a slightly more detailed post, until I read the dislaimer on the bottom of the page :)
: Briefly, my situation....someone has cut and pasted text (word for word) and images from my site onto hers for the purposes of selling the site for a profit.
: I'm unsure as to what action should be taken as we reside in Canada where the website was created, and she is in the US. I don't know if copyright infringment has borders. Can anyone offer advise?

: Sincerely,

Dear Carmen,

There are enforceable rights in the US. If you have a Universal Copyright Covention notice your rights are even stronger.

On the basis of what you say, it looks as if something can be done in the US. On a longshot you may have jurisdiction for infringement in Canada if you check locally.
