Now if only they'd review crap takedown notices on Youtube. Or better yet, tell those that issue the takedown notices, especially ones related to someone using a damn song in their video, to shove it where the sun don't shine.

I'd say this is actually a very positive move on Google's part. They didn't have to do this, but it shows their dedication to their motto, "Don't be evil."

I had a lot of respect for Google until they decided to abide by the censorship policy of the Chinese government.

Instead of PC users it would be better if I wrote: users of computing devices.

This is an alternative to the DoS attack for Google. Well done copyright holders. Google should be ashamed allowing all the swearing in YouTube video comments by default that any kid can see.

That's got to be the most idiotic and misinformed post that I've read in a very long time ...
Google never agreed to anything, that's why they're in Hong Kong now. Plus it is not Google's place to discuss politics. I am an expact in China and here it is, either you accept or you get out, as easy as that. And frankly, if you watch what some copyright holders are doing in the US and the UK (TPB censored), China won't have to be ashamed for long regarding the censorship

1.25m is a tough amount to comply to. I wish there was a distributed search engine that didnt suck, so we could avoid the bs. -- I should be deciding what search results I dont want to see, not other companies.

Good amount of wasted resources there. Since google does not hold any illegal files itself it shouldn't be their job to be internet content nanny. Send the bill back to MPAA/RIAA.

Well, torrent sites do not hold the actual content either and get shut down for providing the links; in a way Google -also without intent- is doing the same.

Exactly, which is why torrent sites shouldnt be censored either, because it sets this kind of bullshit precedent. What next, sue the internet providers for allowing pirated material to cross through their networks? Sue computer manufacturers for allowing pirated material to flow through their harddrives and monitors?

NO, you sue the INFRINGER and thats it. But it would cost the **AA too much money to sue individuals endlessly for all time, so they'er going for bigger targets. FUCK THEM.

The requests targeted more than 24,000 websites that contained pirated copyrighted material, almost half of which belonged to Microsoft.
Microsoft should stop maintaining all of those pirate sites!


(yes, I know what the writer meant to say, but the "which" is ambiguous in its antecedent. And I really did read it this way the first time.)
