There is a certain person whose SL store is full of products that are exact or almost exact replicas of very popular RL brands' products. When I try to send an Abuse Report, it makes it sound like I can not submit it if it is not Copy-Botted. Then when I went to the website to see about sending a letter to LL about it, it seems as if it has to be MY copyright that is being infringed upon.

--------------------------------------------------

That's because it is necessary for the person making the formal complaint (known as a DMCA Take Down) to be the owner of the intellectual property (or digital content) in question.

What is the best way to go about contacting LL about this deliberate copyright infringement? I am tempted to contact the companies themselves and let them take care of it.

-------------------------------------------------------------

That's exactly the way to handle it.
