Top 3 Copyright ‘Owners’ Sent Google a Billion Takedown Requests

Story :

Day in and day out copyright holders are flooding Google with DMCA takedown notices, pointing out links to pirated content.

While the volume has started to decrease over the past year or two, the numbers are still dazzling.

In 2018, copyright holders have reported around 700 million allegedly infringing links to the search engine. Most of these are processed swiftly, making the URLs unfindable in search results.

Since Google started counting in 2011, more than 160,000 copyright owners have used Google’s takedown tool. Together, they submitted more than 3.8 billion URLs. However, on closer inspection, it becomes clear that a small number of rightsholders are responsible for a lot of the action.
