Hey, I just roamed through their site (since I'm living in Japan, I was curious whether it is "real" Japanese or just Japanese written with Google Translate or some other means.)

It does seem like an automated translation. And funnily, they also posted a Japanese version of my copyright article. Can you see the irony?

But I'm asking myself this right now: Do I simply want to file a DMCA cease and desist for it? Or do I want to first copy their Japanese article, then use it as my own (since derivative works also belong to me alone) and THEN file the report, while profiting from someone doing the translation work for me?
