The standard nasty letter might work. But it's tricky unless you have the
overwhelming financial and legal muscle to bury them and kick their
gravestones over.

A Little Story.
A long time ago, in 1995, whilst at university, I made my first web page -
a long essay about Enya. Yes. Enya. It is here:
(note early Jakob Neilsen-esque design).

A few months later I discovered that an American record label who make
easy-listening CDs to sell at garages for 5.99 had used the text, almost
verbatim, as the liner notes of a popular CD. And there wasn't a single
thing I could do about it. I'm still angry today, which is why I have
trouble holding down a job - I just have to lash out sometimes.
