AdSense violation notices
As an effective substitute for...

I'm in the middle of submitting notices to AdSense regarding URLs that infringe on my rights under U.S. copyright law and that are displaying AdSense ads. A couple of queries, since I haven't been down this road before:

* Can this sort of AdSense submission serve as a de facto DMCA notice -- a practical substitute for a notice directly to the web host (specifically, to the agent designated to receive such notices)? Here's what I'm thinking: an infringer whose AdSense account has been suspended and who makes more than couch change with AdSense may very well respond by removing the infringing content and then submitting a reconsideration request to AdSense. So I'm using AdSense as leverage to compel the infringer to remove my content.

* If you're submitting just one URL of an infringing site, but the site contains several different pages where various portions of your content has been scraped, will the infringer's entire AdSense account nevertheless be suspended? Or does the likelihood of suspension or termination depend partly on the extent of (c) infringement at the infringer's sites that display AdSense? (I'm wondering whether I should submit separate forms for each and every infringing page. The online form doesn't provide for multiple submissions, as Google's Web Search DMCA form does.)

* Finally, just wondering: after I hit "submit" on the AdSense form I get a blank page -- no acknowledgment, no redirect to AdSense TOS information, just a blank page. Is this to be expected? (The submission form indicates explicitly that you won't receive any emails from AdSense in response to your submission.)

Best I know you need to send a DMCA notice to Google itself if you want them out of the SERPs and not just out of AdSense. It would make sense that if you sent it to one place in Google that all impacted parties would act on it but they don't always do things that make sense like communicate across products.

FWIW, if you just want the site gone quickly, the ISP/HOST is usually the fastest route assuming it's hosting in the US.

Of course, I've submitted DMCA notices regarding all these URLs to G's Web Search service. But if you're an habitual scraper and just a few of your pages are de-indexed, that probably won't hit you where you live quite like seeing your AdSense earnings suddenly drop to zero -- which goes to my query here. I'm in the U.S., and many, if not most, of my scrapers -- and their ISPs -- are located in the Indian subcontinent and in the China region. Hence my idea of using AdSense notices to achieve the same objective as sending DMCA notices directly to the ISPs/hosts.

BTW, a complainant must submit a separate notice to each Google division (e.g, web search, AdSense, etc.) regarding a given instance of (c) infringement. My submission to Web Search will not be forwarded to the AdSense team, nor vice versa.
