I am owing a site named "mechaicalduniya" and have some articles with great reputation. I have found that some articles in other websites are directly copied from my website by other bloggers without taking any consent from my side.
The problem is, I normally update the date of good articles to their latest date of publishing, so that they remain prominent on the first page or my home page.
Now, in case, I file a DMCA complaint for those articles which are originally old but has been recently updated with latest dates and some one copies it, and while date checking my articles are found with more recent dates than of those who have copied them, would I be held responsible? Will Google take any action against me?
