Google Asked To Remove 18 Pirate Links Every Second

"Enough already!" This news follows Google's introduction of a new algorithm last year that would significantly downrank copyright-infringing sites, but apparently it hasn't been enough to reduce the wants and needs of groups like the RIAA and MPAA.

Just last week Google received a record breaking 12.5 million reported links in seven days, showing that the surge in notices is still ongoing. The BPI and RIAA are among the most active senders of DMCA takedown requests. Together, the music groups have sent notices for 5.5 million URLs over the past month, which represents 12% of all requests.
