Google Removed 50 Million “Pirate” Search Results This Year

TorrentFreak: Over the past year copyright holders have asked Google to remove 51,395,353 links to infringing webpages, a dramatic surge compared to previous years. The search giant is currently processing half a million “infringing” links per day, and this number is increasing week after week. At the same time, Hollywood and the major record labels want Google to increase its anti-piracy efforts. (Culture, Google, Google, Web)
