Google does not give a #*$! who made it, they #*$! on my site. You can search any of my terms, and the scraper spam comes up in my old spots.
What do you expect from a company that owns one of the biggest community of copyright violators (BlogSpot)?
I have a perfect example of one of my very popular graphics that gets copied by bloggers over and over again. It used to show up as the number result for certain queries for several years in a row. Then copyright violators decided to steal it and use it on BlogSpot. All the sudden the stolen version (BlogSpot of course) showed up as number 1 and the original on the second place.
I sent a DMCA and Google removed it. Only a couple of days later a new illegal BlogSpot copy showed up on the first position, pushing mine to the second position. This silly game with new illegal copies showing up is still going on. After more than 10 DMCA removals there is still an illegal copy on the first position and guess what ... the original is nowhere to be found in Google.
However there are 3 "In response to a complaint we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 1 result(s) from this page. If you wish, you may read the DMCA complaint that caused the removal(s) at ChillingEffects.org." mentions at the bottom of the page. 3 complaints I sent.
I'm tired of Google being "excited" about showing "quality" content generated by Panda and Penguin and causing a lot of collateral damage when at the same time I know that they support copyright violations and are not able to detect ordinary scrapers.
