Furpiled.com

I'm not 100% sure that this belongs here, but since it is a community for artists to beware...

There is a new website similar to e621 named Furpiled.com Users frequently upload art that does not belong to them in a searchable gallery. In order to be placed on a DNP list, the admins require any artists to fill out a DMCA for EACH piece of art that they have uploaded.

There are 12 pages of my art up there that I did not authorize.

Agouti-Rex from FA wrote a notification journal in which a user gave a very good idea on how to possibly get the site shut down. They have no age verification system, and so they are freely showing adult art to minors.

Details here: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/1485506/#cid:12488280

Anyways, thought this would be good to bring to peoples attentions.

EDIT:
I've been informed that it is MUCH more effective to send on complete DMCA to the webhost instead of what the website requires. I will probably do this after AC c:

EDIT EDIT: It seems like the site has actually been down for about a year! I received a personal email from the owner with an apology.
