So basically AdSense reported today that two of my pages have been DMCA and ads for those two pages are disabled.

Now I think my pages are genuine, I wrote the text my self without plagiarism: it's a software review where I provide the link to the original software house.

Is there any way to know who filed the DMCA request? If it's a my competitor I would fill the counter DMCA request.

    And do you use your own images? since it's normally videos or images that trigger DCMA, not text content unless it's duplicated or reworded using a spinner. – Simon Hayter Jun 9 '17 at 20:06

Yes, you should be able to use Lumen (formerly Chilling Effects) to look up the DMCA complaint against your site and see who filed it.

If it's a my competitor I would fill the counter DMCA request.

I wouldn't. Filing a false request can have some negative repercussions for you.

  • what? someone did a false DMCA request and I cannot counter notice it? – giò Jun 10 '17 at 8:04
  • anyway I tried to search my website in Lumen and nothing appears, what can I look for? – giò Jun 10 '17 at 8:06
  • 1. Are you sure that this was a full DMCA takedown and not just the threat of one to the ISP? Most ISPs will preemptively take content down in response to even a threat. 2. Lumen is not real time, it can take a few weeks for complaints to show. – JCL1178 Jun 11 '17 at 20:38
