Any idea what to do about this troubling review coming up under my results?

Hello guys:

I have somebody that has written a "review" of my ebook, in order to bash it, and then send people to their product.

It's very obvious what they're doing, to me, but to a consumer, it might be enough to cast doubt on the quality of my product.

I have found out that this person has two identical sites, with the same reviews (he reviews bunches of products, bashes them, then sends them to his affiliates on the side - shady pharmacies).

These two sites have a bunch of duplicate content, but still rank.

It's the duplicate that is gaining ranking somehow, even though it's an obvious copy.

Is there somewhere I can report this to google? There's not enough use of my content for a copyright claim. Thanks.

    You can file a scam or spam report to Google. They don't necessarily react in any way, but this sounds like a something that they might count as spam.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

    Google does not care about duplicate content on multiple sites.

    From your description, I do not see anything that is report worthy.

    Your best bet is to rank enough pages to knock them off the first page.

    As far as Google is concerned you could have just as easily taken the duplicate content from your competition.
