Several years ago I wrote an essay and published it to the web. Some
time later someone let me know that it had been translated into German
and reposted without my knowledge or consent.

I suppose this tool will only find copies that are in the original
language? (Since I don't have a German version to test it with.)

Also, once you discover the stolen property, how does one go about
having it removed or receiving compensation for it? Especially if the
thief is in another country?
