As an intellectual property attorney, I will second the above advice. Registration allows you to take advantage of statutory damages for infringement; without you will have to prove actual damages for infringement.

The DMCA allows a takedown notice that will at least get your article off of the site. Additionally, for anyone else out there: add copyright management information, including your copyright notice, to original images prior to posting for additional DMCA protection. The DMCA does not require registration. Additionally, new laws (PRO IP Act, NET Act (the NET Act primarily allows government, not private action)) are allowing enhanced enforcement, so if it escalates, it is usually a good idea to consult an attorney that stays updated on current law.
