Google & intellectual rights.- American search engine Google receives around 1.2 million applications related to elimination of results in the search every single month which are presented by more than 1,000 owners of copyright content who accuse Google of not protecting their copyrights properly.
This data has been published by the own search engine in an attempt to offer as much transparency as possible. The American computing giant has published transparency reports for the last two years with the intention of preventing users from infringing laws regarding intellectual rights.
The last report of the company in transparency includes data collected from July 2011 to the present, revealing that in the last months the search engine received around 250,000 applications regarding copyrights every single week.
Among the companies that have handed applications to delete content are many discography firms such as Sony Music or cinema producers like Universal or Warner.
