I had recently faced such an issue regarding False Google DMCA. I am blogging from last 3 years and never think about doing copy or even to rewrite the steps and explanation through the reference of other blogs. I always write topics which i know and easily able to explain in my own words.
But last week someone filed Google DMCA Take down claimed and blogger revert draft my one blog post. I was really shocked and feeling disappointment about this. Article was Facebook feature about request submit through official form and i only explain which is already published in Facebook help center in my own words even a single line was not similar. Article was published from approx 2 years and at that time there was not even a single who posted about it and have more 1 Lakh+ blogger page view on that topic.
Now Please Help me About
- What I have to do now ? Left that article in draft as it is or try file counter claim.
- How to protect my blog in future from these types of Take Down ? In case someone copy my own written article filed case against me then what should i have to do ?
- Will effect Blog rankings ??
At last i would like to say thanks to @Mohammad or introducing this Blogger Help Center Community, Great Job
