Kimpak: Google shouldn't have corrected the mistake.
Endive Wombat: Are there any figures showing exactly how much money/revenue has been "saved" or "protected" because of the DMCA? I imagine it is negligible at best.
Tyrone Slothrop: If a company falsely accuses a website of copyright violation, their site should be blocked instead.
dionysusaur: any figures would be the result of RIAA/MPAA math. you know, $125,000 in losses for sharing a single song on line.
MusicMakeMyHeadPound: As a reactionary and anti-market law, I wouldn't be at all surprised if it costs more than it saves.And that would even explain the major uptick in automated takedowns too. Some pinhead figured they could eliminate the enormous overhead costs without realizing the potential for damage in doing so.
jamspoon: Tyrone Slothrop: If a company falsely accuses a website of copyright violation, their site should be blocked instead.So they should block Microsoft for wrongly trying to block Microsoft?
