I send an official "takedown notice" and let the violators know they can be fined upward of $750/day for every day the copyright violation isn't corrected. That usually takes care of it. If they want your content, they should either be willing to 1) pay for reprint rights or 2) with your agreement, credit you for it. Going after them for copyright violation is expensive, and they'll pay all costs if it comes to that.

As someone who has had his stuff stolen too many times to count, I agree completely with your approach. As you pointed out, usually the threat to having to pay a lot of money solves the problem. For some reason, people think that if they find it on the internet, it's fair game, no money need be paid, no credit need be given.

If it is copyright protected - leave it alone. We shameless steal un-copyright protected content from others; however, we credit our sources(it called research).

Send a notice demanding they take it down and warn them that the next step is reporting them.

Just send them a scheduled invoice every month for "rent / retainer / royalty" to use your work. Tack on the 18% for being over due. When they get around to asking you about your bill... present them with the legal action alternative.

If they are going to be smarmy and use other's work without credit, royalty or payment... then just play the game right back. They'll either pay or take down your content. And who knows, you might end up with unexpected lunch money to treat the office staff for in-perpetuity!
