If someone is using your design without your permission, use a cease and desist letter to make a formal request for them to stop ("cease") and not continue ("desist")
this behavior. Generate a cease and desist letter and send it to the person or company infringing your intellectual property rights. Attach your original design
and screenshots showing where/how the infringer is using it without your permission.
After receiving this letter, if the infringing person or company does not cease and desist, then you should contact the authorities who can take action
against the infringer. For example, if your design is being used on a website, then send the letter to the hosting provider of that website. If your design is being
used on YouTube, Facebook or any other social media site, then contact the support for that site, or fill out the copyright infringement form.
The same cease and desist letter can be printed and sent to a physical address, preferably as a certified letter.
