There is plenty more to be done, and we look forward to further refining and improving our processes in ways that help both rightsholders and users.
Nice words, but I'm not sure reality matches up. I've filed numerous DMCA notices with Google regarding AdSense ads on pirate websites and while the actual link of my film is removed, the site remains active and features both Google ads and thousands of illegal downloads. It's not rocket science to take one look at the site and note that it exists only to pirate illegal content (and make money from that activity).I would also ask about the tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of Blogger sites that exist only as a portal for disseminating links to stolen content. When DMCA complaints are filed with Google regarding these sites the same thing happens. The suspect link is removed while the site is allowed to remain active and continue its pirate ways.Also, I would ask Google what, if anything, it plans to do about the AdSense ads that populate the various cyber-locker websites. Everyone knows that the vast majority of content "shared" via these sites is comprised of stolen films, music, e-books, etc. Google plays a huge role in making these sites profitable. How about severing your connection to these sites that show NO interest in vetting uploaded content.It seems Google has been forced to make some changes. Hopefully, they will become more proactive to ensure that their profits are legitimate.
I like the cut of your jib Google. And by "cut" I mean "responsible without curtailing free speech" and by "jib" I mean "jib."
