How to File Free DMCA Complaint to Google when your Content is Copied

Bloggers search for new, low competitive and fresh contents and do lot of research for that around the web and finally write a fresh and unique content. There are cases that the copied content rank better than orginal, because of so many factors. But when someone copies their content, then they really feel bad. It really hurts them a lot when the content stealer does not remove it or fight for copyrights.

I personally hate these copycats, well in olden days there was an option to file a complaint in DMCA by which you can remove the copied content, if you have proper copyrights document. Now Google has introduced new free DMCA service, through which google will not index the blog which holds your copied content and will be banned from GSE.
