  1. Tara, as a copyright holder of work that Google put on the web for free, I’m not surprised that Google gets a lot of those notices. What they do may be legal but it isn’t fair. Google profit from ads on the pages where they dump other people’s work. This is a license to mis-use – “they can’t be held liable for their pirating users as long as they properly process takedown notices.” and they compound the harm by not making it impossible or even hard for anyone at all to upload any work that has already been the subject of a successful DMCA claim to Google. That would be reasonable wouldn’t it? Thanks. John Williams
