Kim Dotcom has Hollywood's feathers rustled over his new Mega service, with Warner Bros. and NBC Universal asking Google to remove Mega from their search results, claiming that Dotcom's service is hosting copyrighted material on its servers.
Dotcom has hit back, as usual, where he responded to the requests in a statement to TorrentFreak, where he said the requests are the same "unreasonable content industry behavior" that he has put up with for years now. Google haven't complied with the movie studio's requests just yet, with the Mega domain continuing to show up in Google search results. Dotcom does note that a lot of these requests are actually false alarms, which happen from an automated and abusive system:
During the Megaupload days over 20% of all takedown notices were bogus. We analysed big samples of notices and most were automated keyword based takedowns that affected a lot of legitimate files. The abuse of the takedown system is so severe that no service provider can rely on takedown notices for a fair repeat infringer policy.
