Hi all,

A quick question regarding an external duplicate content issue I have.

A site has duplicated a substantial amount of my site's content and I have noticed a slip in the rankings around the time of when the duplicated site was cached.

I have contacted the webmaster of the site with no response so I am now contemplating using the DMCA take-down request offered by Google.

My issue is there doesn't really seem to be a category when submitting your DMCA request to Google for the removal of duplicate content, it seems to be geared more around "trademark violations" and "miss-leading product descriptions".

Has anyone had any success with this or have any tips on how I should proceed with this?

Any information would be greatly received.

Best Regards,
Tom
