Google hasn't successfully attacked spam.
Just a casual check yesterday produced two sites that are blatantly using my trade name and copyrighted images from my site in an attempt to "duplicate" pages off my site. Guess what? They OUTRANK ME!
I filed DMCA's against both, but will probably wind up on the "dirty" end of the stick in the end just for filing the reports. Hitting true spammers is fine, but this whole idea of being penalized for undoing what was "standard practice" a few years ago is earning G no love from this cat.
