Default Help!

Can anyone tell me what I should do about this problem?

Someone has hacked into the computer of the administrator of my gaming clan's forum and stolen our copyright. They have then removed our copyright info from the site it was registered on and when we complained, they turned around and said that there was nothing we could do because this guy had the copyrights.

Please help.

How did you regiser the copyright? You can't just write a sentance or draw a picture and say it's yours, to actally ergister a copyright you have to register it with an official office, they will be able to help you

Yeah; if you copyrighted the pictures or items with the Copyright Office then they will help you. If you didn't; then he hasn't either and you can steal them back off him!
