Default Reporting illegal downloads of other companies

I happened to see what I suspect is an illegal download site for another game company's product. I went to their website but didn't find any obvious reporting email or other instructions (like SJGames has).

Should I look harder, send it to the closest fit in their contact emails, or just forget about it?

Or contact the author?

(I saw some SJGames products in the same search, but sent them off to netcell as requested.)

Most companies will have some sort of contact page on their website, even if it's just a web form. If you don't find it, you could Google "site:<company website> contact" to see if that pulls up a contact page.

If nothing else, webmaster@[DomainName].com (or .org or whatever) is usually a monitored address and will at least get forwarded along to the right person.

I once found some Pathfinder PDFs with a Google search. After trying, in vain to find the link, I just sent an email to Paizo's regular customer service address. The customer service agent forwarded my email, and replied to me with the correct address. Odds are, if you can't find the official address or channel, the regular one will be 'good enough'.
