Duplicate of my website on Adwords

Good afternoon,


I've got an issue with a competitor who duplicated our website, then added it on adwords. We are on adwords as well.


The competitor's version is almost verbatim except for the phone number and address.

Now this competitor is submitting DMCA takedown on our ads.


I've submitted a DMCA to Google Search (has been accepted, so this is done with.), called Adwords support who passed the information on, I've submitted another DMCA compaint to Adwords as well. Is there anything else I have to do ? Is there anyway to speed the process up? My competitor seems to have a fast way to do it as different campaigns of my account keep dropping every few hours then I have to edit one letter in my ads to get them back online.



Thank you for your help,

I think that the only avenue to pursue in this case, is a legal one.
