A firm letter from an attorney might be one method of getting movement on this issue.
 
Site A might want to consider registering the copyright for the material on your web page.   While the material is protected by copyright without registration, a number of rights including the right to sue are only accessible when registered.

That's the right to sue for copyright infringement, of course.  From the facts presented, the OP might also have a claim in the nature of trespass to chattels and/or breach of contract (based on the "terms of use"), neither of which requires copyright registration.
