Google's 'transparency report' reveals Microsoft's piracy problems
Washington, May 24 (ANI): Google has released a report in the U.S. to provide a better understanding of the intellectual property abuses on the internet, after Microsoft faced copyright infringement problems by other websites.
The new report, released by the internet search giant, includes a breakdown of all requests Google has received since July 2011 to remove copyright-infringing content from its search index. Google also plans to update the information daily.
Google decided to share its insights on copyright abuse amid a loudening outcry for a crackdown against online piracy that media companies have claimed is collectively costing them billions of dollars each year.
The initiative was taken by Google as about 97 per cent of the copyright removal requests sent to search engine were found to be valid by the company, prompting the obnoxious links to be blocked from its influential search results.
According to the Sydney morning Herald, Google has logged more than 2.5 million requests to remove links believed to be violating Microsoft's copyrights in the past 11 months.
However, the report doesn't identify the specifics of the reported infringements, but Microsoft has long complained about illegal downloads of its Windows operating system and other software.
Microsoft remained unavailable for comment. (ANI)
