Adwords DMCA Complaint

The ad dissappeared, but Google says that can't help

A 'competitor' recently copied my long-running Adwords ads verbatim, and outbid me in a number of content-match areas. So, I submitted an Adwords DMCA complaint. Almost immediately, the ads disappeared. About six hours later I got an email from Google stating they were "unable to assist."

I'd really like to know if anybody has had similar experiences with an Adwords DMCA complaint. What is really going on behind the scenes?

Also, I'd really love to know how to find out exactly who the infringer is. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Search using those terms. Find the ads. Follow the links. You at least have the domain that is copying you and possible the person behind them if they didn't pay for domain privacy.
