After un-pausing and changing minor text in my ads. Google disapproved the ads reason "DMCA Copyright" No video or other information copied from another web site. Google customer support will not give out any information on who or anything about the copyright infringement. We've never received any kind of notification. Kind of shocked; all the content on the site is ours written by myself and web guy. At a loss..

Hi Pamela,


Thanks for posting. As far as I'm aware, the only way to ensure your ads are reinstated is to fill out this form: .


This will ensure you are dealing directly with the Legal Team, who will be able to advise you further and you will be able to ask them more specific questions as to the exact nature of the disapproval. 


Best of luck.
