Google Removed 50M Pirate Search Results In 2012

Google removed fifty million pirate search results in 2012. That is ninety five requests per minute, every day, for a year straight. Damn. eek!

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.
