A competitor stolen my content. He grabbed my site and changed some minimal things, then uploaded to another domain. My original site contains adsesnse ads. I assume he is not interested in making me win any money, just robbing my content to their benefit is enough.
He didn't use my ads but I wonder what happens if he do?
Is there any way to block sites from unauthorized adsense code?
I had the same thing happen to me recently--someone copied my index page and replaced my company's name with their's. But they left my adsense code embedded. I contacted the Adsense team and they turned my ads off on that page.
Myself and others have repeatedly commented that there needs to be a feature in the AdSense control panel where one could list the allowed domains. It would be even better if said feature listed not allowed domains that one's ads were showing up on. It would be a great way to catch really stupid site scrapers.
What is theproblem with other sites using your adsence code?
The problem is when someone places your adsense code on a porn site (or soem other site with banned content). Google terminates YOUR account and you lose all your money because someone ELSE stole your ID. That's the problem.
And I agree, having a white list/black list feature (or at least a list of sites where your AdSense code is being displayed) is a much-needed feature on AdSense.

In my case, some crook stole all my content but replaced the Adsense ID with his then uploaded the content to his website. When I reported that to Google, I was asked to file a DMCA complaint though I thought that this was also an AdSense TOS violation. All I got was clicks to other pages that had links from that page. Not bad but I thought Google should have dealt with him considering he is violating AdSense TOS.
