As The Verge concludes, BPI isn’t watching what it’s flagging very carefully (or there’s a conspiracy), and obviously Google isn’t, or isn’t capable of, monitoring too closely which copyright complaint notices its acting on. Full story at The Verge:
On June 30th, the British Recorded Music Industry (BPI) group listed a series of pages that it wanted removed from Google Search. Most of the links were understandable: they offered free downloads of albums by Universal Music Group artists like Drake and Maroon 5. But three of the requests pointed instead to reviews of Drake’s album Take Care, one by The A.V. Club and one by About.com writer Henry Adaso. While the former still comes up in Google’s listings, the latter is noted as removed after a DMCA complaint, and Adaso is wondering why.
