I was sending out some DMCA notices for something that belongs to me that was being uploaded to filesharing and BlackHat sites … you know the drill. Typical low life pirate crap. I came across several sites that were promoting pirated products and running Adsense at the same time. I know that Google has a link to report Adsense abuse and spam in their index, so I used that and reported at least 20 sites that were promoting pirated products and running Adsense.
You know what their response was? In spite of sending a DMCA with the infringing page listed and the product name listed, etc., they issued a response saying they didn’t see any infringement and therefore would not be suspending the Adsense account of the [pirate].
All the hoopla over the big, bad Panda update and how Google wants only relevant results and “quality content” and blah blah blah.
