Google Search Counterfeit goods policy

Upon notice, Google will remove web pages selling counterfeit goods from our search results. Counterfeit goods contain a trademark or logo that is identical to or substantially indistinguishable from the trademark of another. They mimic the brand features of the product in an attempt to pass themselves off as a genuine product of the brand owner. 

This policy only applies to specific web pages selling counterfeit goods and does not apply to non-counterfeit trademark issues. Failure to limit complaints under this policy to web pages selling counterfeit goods may result in restrictions on sending future complaints.

If you are a trademark owner or their authorized agent and you would like to request the removal of a specific web page selling counterfeit goods from Google Search results, please submit a complaint. As part of our efforts to remain transparent, a copy of each legal notice we receive may be sent to the Lumen project. Lumen publishes these notices after removing certain personal information.

If you are a website owner and you believe your web page has been incorrectly removed for violation of our Google Search Counterfeit goods policy,  please submit an appeal. We will only reinstate removed web pages to our search results in instances where it is established that the original removal was conducted pursuant to a deficient complaint.
