Earlier today, Torrent Freak published an article detailing the number of take down requests that Google receives and acts upon, in the previous week, they report

Google received DMCA notices from 5,407 copyright owners and reporting organizations requesting the removal of 5,310,080 URLs spanning a total of 37,413 domains.

Obviously, I have been exposed to the copyright maximalist’s constant propaganda at #lab13 and further with the press coverage of the Select Committee, so its great to see this reported. The Torrentfreak article ends,

it’s difficult to see how much more it can do, unless it doesn’t even index ‘pirate’ URLs in the first place….

…and, of course, there you have it……the Holy Grail – for now at least.

and they’re right, they want everything

Google deleted five million index entries in a week
