In recent past, a number of popular file-sharing and torrent sites have been taken down by the U.S. authorities. The pretext to do so is simple – the whims of the content industry. Online pirates lost Demonoid, Megaupload and BTJunkie this year, besides others. But a number of anti-piracy over-active groups seem quite ignorant of this.


This information divulged by Google’s Transparency Report. The report reveals the companies which request any kind of content to be taken down and also the content which they seek to take down.

Usually, content production companies send Google DMCA notices over the most tiniest of things, thus bombarding the search giant with a huge number of such notices. This is done as if to punish Google for its refusal to completely take out piracy-related links from its search results.

What is rather interesting, though, is that many of these content producing companies are surprisingly ignorant about the current affairs. For instance, companies such as Sony, Warner, BPI, Microsoft and others sent requests to Google to take down certain content from Megaupload – even though Megaupload has been wiped off the face of web.

Similarly, Demonoid went down during the first week of August and yet different so-called anti-piracy organizations are filing complaints against its content every day, despite the fact that it no longer exists. Same stands for BTJunkie.

The question is, why do these anti-piracy companies continue to file DMCA notices against websites which no longer exist? Has DMCA notices become a tool of the content industry simply to pressurize a website into accepting its demands?
