---- What Does This Response From Google To A DMCA Request Really Mean?

Did you include the following "DMCA Notification Statement" listed below or is Google currently using a check box for this?
google has a checkbox for this. So I am 99% sure that it was checked when we submitted it.
Also for $35 you can upload the contents of your site periodically to the Copyright Office in the US.
Thanks for reminding me of this. I will do so today.
Did you spell this to Google in your DMCA? With example URLs, and if possible, archive.org of pages from your site (the current and the previous URL) to prove the content has been there longer?
Unfortunately, I did not do this. Thank you for the suggestion and I will do this when I refile the DMCA
Is there another scrapped copy on someone else's domain which could make Google doubt you are the copyright holder?
I didn't see any others, but I will have to do more thorough checking. I basically just checked ONE of my articles, discovered his site, and using HIS site navigation, found copies to the pages that had our other articles on his site.
I think you have more chance if you present them with the proof that your content was there longer than on any other URL that might scraped it.
Thanks again. I will certainly provide more proof when I file again.
Man, trying to get bad links removed and chasing down scraper sites is KILLING my time. Would much rather be spending this time improving my site.
