Update: Google Responds (Sort of)

5

I received an email earlier today from Google saying that they received and are looking into my previous DMCA notice.

Though the reply was just an autoresponse, letting me know that they are processing the complaint, it is important for three reasons:

  1. It means they received the complaint.
  2. They did not find a flaw in it (usually cases where Google finds a flaw in a DMCA notice the first communication is an apology).
  3. Action is likely coming soon.

In my personal experience with Google they usually send out a note like this one a few days before they take action. Though the first note usually comes within 24 hours, the second note, saying that the complaint has been processed, usually comes about 48 hours later.

I’ll keep everyone informed as to how things are going and what further information I hear from Google.

My only hope is that the Adsense team is as good as the Blogger team about handling DMCA complaints.

  1. This is good, I'm hoping that we'll all see some changes on Bitacle's front now.

    I'll be faxing in my DMCA notice tomorrow (worse comes to worst, I'll snail-mail the sucker), since as luck would have it I'd forgotten that my home phone was disabled (replaced with a cell phone since it's cheaper). With any luck, I'll get a similar acknowledgement from Google.

    Keep up the good work, and good luck.

  3. Noel,

    Good luck with your notice. Be aware that it might take a while. It took me nearly a week to hear anything back and it appears that it is pretty typical for the Adsense team.

    Let me know what you hear back!
