Huge problem with their policy, at least for small businesses: when I filed a DMCA complaint and gave links to articles that were stolen from my site and from other major sites like Cnet and IGN.com, Adsense said they would do nothing unless I:
file an action seeking a court order to restrain the counter-notifierís allegedly infringing activity
Now, this site only stole a handful of articles from me, so it's not worth my time to seek a court order, but the site is stealing hundreds of articles from Cnet and IGN, and still Adsense would take no action. It doesn't seem like they're being very proactive at all. I guess they're happy to make money on it until forced to stop doing so.
