Google continues to expand its Transparency Report. This time Google has added a list of recently submitted URLs for takedown that the company declined. This latest update comes on the heels of Google expanding the report to include a statistics on the number of false DMCA takedown requests received.
Besides having the effect of calling out the sheer ignorance (stupidity?) of the rights managements groups, the new section brings attention to these links that the company attempted to have removed. Obviously, some of the requested links that were rejected by Google are more entertaining than others.
For instance, Audiolock issued a takedown request for 25 different URLs. Google denied 84 percent because many of the links were to the band's music on iTunes, Spotify, and eMusic. Go figure.
Check out the newly updated Transparency Report and feel free to send us any especially humorous takedown requests similar to the one above.
