Pirate CHART -FilesTube Tops Google Copyright Takedown List

Google has published detailed information on the wide variety of DMCA takedown requests the company receives for its search engine.

Ernesto TorrentFreak, 25 May 2012

During the last month alone Google was asked to remove 1,246,713 links across 24,129 domains, including many torrent sites and cyberlockers. Interestingly enough, Google receives the most takedowns for FilesTube, a colleague search-engine which by itself honors DMCA takedown requests and already removes even more links than Google does.



Under the DMCA copyright holders have the right to demand that websites disable access to infringing content. One of the top recipients of these notices is without a doubt Google.
To give the public insight into the scope and nature of this process Google has decided to publish all takedown requests online as part of their transparency report.
“Specifically, we’re disclosing the number of requests we get from copyright owners and the organizations that represent them to remove Google Search results because they allegedly link to infringing content,” Google states.

Quote:
“We’re starting with search because we remove more results in response to copyright removal notices than for any other reason. So we’re providing information about who sends us copyright removal notices, how often, on behalf of which copyright owners and for which websites.”
The data shows that Google receives by far the most takedown requests for fellow search engine FilesTube. During the last month they disabled access to 43,469 links after being notified by 233 copyright holders. During the last year Google disabled access to 389,512 FilesTube links, twice as many when compared to the 147,318 links from runner-up Torrentz.eu.

Google takedowns for FilesTube



The above is interesting because FilesTube, in common with many other sites in the top list, honors DMCA takedown requests itself. FilesTube owner Arkadiusz Senko told TorrentFreak that he is surprised to see his site at the top of the list, and confirmed that his company also works directly with copyright holders to remove infringing content.
In fact, FilesTube informs TorrentFreak that they remove 2,000,000 links per month from their search index, which is more than Google. These links are removed within 24-hours and FilesTube also adds several filters per day to make sure content with specific infringing file names doesn’t later reappear.
While many of the takedown requests are valid, Google’s data reveals that in some cases the DMCA is abused to apply broad and unwarranted censorship.

In this notice, for example, NBC Universal asked Google to block access to a search on FilesTube for the word “battleships,” a term that does not exclusively link to NBC content.
Looking further down the list of targeted domains we see The Pirate Bay listed in 13th place. And because of the Pirate Bay blockades in the UK, the Netherlands and elsewhere, several reverse proxy sites including those of the UK and Dutch Pirate Party are also listed.
Steve Wilson, head of Pirate Party UK’s IT Team, responded by pointing out that removing Google’s search results doesn’t do anything to prevent the actual content from being shared.
“Obviously the removal of search results does not remove the linked content and all of that content is still searchable through the Pirate Bay’s own search page. The linked content itself doesn’t relate directly to material owned by the copyright holder either, but is rather a further link to content held across many computers and accessible via a peer-to-peer network,” Wilson told TorrentFreak.
Google’s data further reveals the Microsoft is the most active copyright holder when it comes to sending takedown notices. The software giant asked Google to block access to a total of 2,544,209 links during the last year, and is followed by NBC Universal and the RIAA with 985,995 and 416,731 targeted links respectively.

One of the reasons why Google made the data public is to aid the ongoing discussions on how online piracy should be addressed. And as we will reveal later today, there’s plenty of discussion possible, especially about some borderline insane takedown requests that reveal how copyright holders sometimes shoot themselves in the foot.

Default Re: CHART -FilesTube Tops Google Copyright Takedown List

Microsoft turns out to be the most active as far as take downs go. Google averages over 1 million take downs a month, with an average response time of 11 hours.

The company Marketly issues the take downs on behalf of Microsoft. What is really interesting is that while Marketly sends these by the wheelbarrow load to Google, the same items removed from Google are still available from Mircosoft's search engine Bing.

Why these are often so bogus is that no one is actually looking at the takedowns for if it is really infringement material (though Google actually does hands on to check). As you have mentioned, the word Battleship is not an infringement event, yet Google is being asked to remove references to it. Do you think at any time they will go back and remove the take down request?

Or how about Jay Leno... Jay did a show on political commercials. One of them was a parody made by two individuals to mock the current election campaign at the time. It was hosted to YouTube. The guys that made it learned it had been featured on Jay's show, laughed about it, and went on about their lives. Less than a year later, NBC claims copyright ownership and has the video pulled from YouTube. This really upset the people that made the snippet. Directly, the real owner of the clip claims Jay did this on purpose. (He knows that isn't so but again parody rules) The point is there are no real damaging penalties for when one of the copywrong gang gets it wrong. They have no incentive to get it right so it's a free-for-all to take anything down that is remotely possible to claim. Abuses abound as demonstrated in this response.

This comment of yours made me laugh, cos I was thinking the same thing;
