Copyright Removal Requests – Google Transparency Report

How many takedown requests does Google receive from organisations to censor search results? Nearly 1.3 million a month, according to Google’s Transparency Report, and you might be surprised to learn that Microsoft heads up the list with nearly half a million (nearly 20 times the RIAA).

It might be interesting to also note Microsoft funds an outfit called ‘Pirate Pay’, who’s purpose is to intentionally corrupt Bittorrent traffic (you can read more technical details here – http://www.cert.pl/news/5365/langswitch_lang/en). Also note the section on the website called User Data Requests, where Google is requested by authorities to hand over user data.
