Despite being closed, are requesting Google remove links to Megaupload
It has been almost nine months since the completion of the assault on Kim DotCom’s mansion in New Zealand, where he was arrested and the download site MegaUpload closed . However, as a clear sign that companies claimed against Piracy without the rigor that would correspond to the losses declared, Google still receives daily requests to remove content from Megaupload, Demonoid, btjunkie piracy and other sites already closed.
All this despite the protests during the last years of the big companies in the entertainment industry that Google ‘not doing enough’ to prevent piracy, charging that has cost the U.S. economy a whopping $ 250,000 million and is responsible for over 750,000 jobs lost in this country.
For this type of protest, Google has made changes such as removing your auto complete terms that can be associated with copyright infringing content , and even changed its search algorithm to pirate content sites go down in the ranking of results.
Despite this, companies affected by these alleged multimillion losses have not bothered to check if you are sending valid claims. For example, these companies like Sony Music and the BPI (British Recorded Music Industry, the RIAA English) have requested that Google remove – on average-25 weekly from Megaupload links so far this year.
Other companies like EMI or Microsoft have also made requests to withdraw from Google Demonoid links to the torrent site that has closed about a month , as well as sites like BTjunkie, Oron and FileSonic. A clear sign that companies do not bother to check that things are what they are protesting.
