    Good day!

    Faced with such a situation:

    there is a company "A", it has a service "AA." I have a website where there are a few articles about this service "AA". And these pages are moving on the key "AA".
    I received a letter (trademark infringement) from "A" that I was violating copyright and illegally using their registered trademark. Requirements: stop, remove, and never :).

    Posted on my website adsense. In the ad units are placed direct competitors of the company "A". They do not advertise on google. The claim that I bring traffic to competitors. I have no idea whose advertising is placed there.
    That is, they forbid me to write on my website about their company. Are any products, services, etc. my site is not offered. Simple description of the company and the service "AA".

    In the domain name has no trademarks. Absolutely neutral name widely covering this niche.

    We are talking about the USA.

    Maybe someone faced with something similar. Something you advise or suggest me. Thank you. How should I proceed?

    Are those review articles? It's hard to say without knowing what "AA" is and how the articles are written. I would probably seek help from a lawyer as that would be the best advice you could get. If the niche hasn't been profitable enough to do this and you don't want to risk being sued then you've only got one option.

    Remove the ads right now. If they file a complaint with google you will lose your adsense account. Then, as long as you are not infringing on their copyright (I can look if you want to pm me ) call their bluff with a fantastic response :) PS remove your adsense

    yes this review articles: сompany "A" is really cool, everyone knows it, offers very good services. If you need to - use their service "AA". You will get many benefits ..... bla-bla-bla, etc. :) If you want to know more - go to the site "A".

    Search for "AA" in Google - a lot of advertising competitors of "A".
