Can anyone shed light on why all my copycats come up in search and mine does not?

I filed three infringement reports on all of them, I've heard nothing back from Merch, they have not been removed, and my designs are so unique that it's a pixel to pixel copy. They are gaining BSR and yet my original design doesn't even come up in search but theirs do. Why is this?

found the same problem with my best seller this morning. Went to my manage tab, where my design was still showing as live, clicked the link and found that it took me to a "Page Not Available" landing page. The dozens of copycats are still up and doing well.

It could be an "inside job". Who knows.

I think it's inside dealing. I have complained about how my competitors are gaming the algorithm. amazon doesn't care.
