Unlike 2014, Google inc might need to process more requests as to pull pirate websites out of it’s search engine system. As of this month March, the high tech firm had received a total 75 million DCMA-related takedown requests. The requests were to keep out or put those black listed websites invincible during search results. Websites which offers leaked albums downloads, movies and other movies were inclusive in the requests.
The growth of these requests have increased over the last two years. According to a report from Torrent Freak, Google is said to have be processing over 100,000 URL per hour effectively which unlike 2014 when throughout the year, the company only processed 345 million requests in total.
Google on the other hand has refused to lock out the entire domain URL which must’ve been reported as infringing copyrights. The company believes that “Whole site removal would simply drive piracy to new domains, legitimate sites, and social networks,” That was based on a letter from the tech giant back in October. Even though, the company still continue to process more and more requests and the suggested processing this year 2016 is expected to go as high as billions of requests.
As legitimate as possible were the takedowns. There are two websites according to TheVerge with the name “mp3” in its URL among the top five to be processed this month. Since the Panda and Penguin updates, the Google search bot algorithm has been quiet smarter in pulling off blacklisted domain names but as the request for copyright prevention climbs higher, this could mean owners of such copyrights are willing to utilise every chance they have to have them protected.
