  • Google對99.2%的針對Internet存檔的版權聲明 不採取任何行動

    ◎版權持有者和反盜版團體向Google發送針對Internet存檔的刪除通知後,根據Google發布的數據,對IA的投訴中,99.2%“未採取任何措施”,只有0.1%的投訴導致某種形式的下架
    ◎「Internet Archive The Internet Archive (IA)」除了存檔3,300億網頁的Wayback Machine外,還營運龐大的媒體資料庫。根據該網站的數據,它目前提供2000萬本書和文本,450萬份錄音(包括18萬現場音樂會),400萬個視頻(包括160萬電視新聞節目),300萬件圖像和20萬個軟體程式。
    ◎Internet存檔無法主動管理服務器上所有最終的內容,每天有400萬個唯一IP地址前往該網站,因此必定會發生侵權。這些投訴是通過該平台的濫用小組及其註冊的DMCA代理處理,但一些版權所有者希望搜索巨頭Google從其索引中查找IA URL。但根據Google提供的最新數據,絕大多數情況下,Google絕對不採取任何措施來應對收到的99.2%的投訴,並明確標明“未採取任何措施”。Google的數據進一步顯示,除了99.2%的投訴外,還有0.6%的投訴被拒絕為重複請求。目前,少數投訴被標記為待處理,這意味著所有投訴中,只有0.1%導致內容被除名。
    ◎大多數發送給Google的投訴通知都可以在數據庫上找到,(包括Springer Nature,Viacom,Macmillan,RIAA,Warner Bros., SiriusXM, Adobe, Paramount, Disney等)。其中,可以看到Sirius XM在6月發送的投訴,是針對「Howard Stern Show」的幾百集節目,但沒有幾集被Google刪除。有趣的是,同樣的通知要求網站MagnetDL上的同一節目也應刪除。根據Google數據,這些內容均已處理,其中43個連結被刪除,其他則標記為重複請求。這顯示Google對某些類別的網站有不同的對待方式。
    ◎總體而言,向Google發送有關Internet存檔的投訴似乎毫無意義,因為它的統計數據表明,只有在極少數情況下,確實會起作用,因此版權持有人最好還是直接向網站投訴。

    Copyright holders and anti-piracy groups might want to consider best use of their resources when sending takedown notices to Google targeting the Internet Archive. According to data published by Google, 99.2% of complaints against IA result in 'no action taken', with just 0.1% of complaints resulting in some kind of takedown.
    Internet Archive The Internet Archive (IA) is a massive content resource by any metric. In addition to its Wayback Machine that archives 330 billion web pages, IA operates a huge media repository too.
    According to the site’s data, it currently offers 20 million books and texts, 4.5 million audio recordings (including 180,000 live concerts), 4 million videos, (including 1.6 million Television News programs), 3 million images and 200,000 software programs.
    Internet Archive can’t proactively police every piece of content that ends up on its servers (anyone can upload with a free account) so with four million unique IP addresses accessing the site every day, some infringement is bound to take place. Those complaints are dealt with via the platform’s abuse team and its registered DMCA agent but some copyright holders go to Google instead, hoping the search giant delists IA URLs from its indexes.
    Filing Complaints with Google is Probably a Waste of Time
    According to the latest data made available by Google, the Archive.org domain has had 10,840 delisting requests made against it, covering 100,075 URLs. Given the scale of the Internet Archive, this isn’t particularly surprising but Google’s overall response is interesting.
    As the image below shows, in the vast and overwhelming majority of cases, Google takes absolutely no action in response to 99.2% of the complaints it receives, clearly marking them with “no action taken”.
    Internet Archive DMCA
    Google’s data further reveals that in addition to the 99.2%, a further 0.6% of complaints are rejected as being duplicate requests. Currently a couple of handfuls of complaints are marked as pending meaning that of all complaints, just 0.1% result in content being delisted.
    So Are All Complaints Bogus Then?
    This, of course, is the million-dollar question. Even with the massive resources at its disposal, not even Google is in a position to check every single complaint for validity. However, most notices sent to the company are available on the Lumen Database which reveals complaints being sent by industry giants including Springer Nature, Viacom, Macmillan, RIAA, Warner Bros., SiriusXM, Adobe, Paramount, Disney and a couple of hundred others
    Tackling some of the bigger names and recent senders, we can see that a complaint sent by Sirius XM in June targeted what appears to be hundreds of episodes of the Howard Stern Show, none of which were removed by Google and remain on the Internet Archive today.
    Interestingly, however, the same notice demanded that episodes of the same show indexed by torrent site MagnetDL should be removed too. According to Google’s data, these were all processed, with 43 episodes/links delisted and others marked up as duplicate requests. This tends to suggest that Google treats certain categories of sites differently.
    A complaint sent late May by Macmillan reveals the publisher trying to have links to eBooks taken down. However, the links – while still live on the Internet Archive – reveal only limited previews of books that must be loaned from the Archive as part of its controversial program that currently has publishers up in arms. None were delisted by Google.
    No Shortage of Screw-Ups in DMCA Notices Sent to Google
    Another notice sent in May, this time by Disney, targets hundreds of URLs on other sites but just three on the Internet Archive. Unfortunately, however, all three complaints are erroneous
    The first, which attempts to take down copies of the movie ‘Stuber’, actually asks for the removal of the movie’s classification document. The second, in an effort to remove a copy of an episode of ‘American Horror Story’, actually targets a podcast talking about the show. The third request makes a similar error.
    Another notice, again sent by Disney, seeks to remove copies of the movie ‘Tolkien’ but again misidentified a podcast and an image of some Tolkien-related icons.
    Plenty of Legitmate Claims Too
    During the dive into the archives it was clear to see that, at least in some cases, copyright holders must’ve also contacted IA directly with duplicate takedown notices.
    When following complained-about links to the site, some showed the following message: “This item is no longer available. Items may be taken down for various reasons, including by decision of the uploader or due to a violation of our Terms of Use.” This would account for Google taking no action in relevant cases.
    However, there are some cases where contentious content has stayed up, music tracks by NWA/Eazy-E and anti-virus software published by Avast, to give just two examples
    Overall, however, it does seem rather pointless sending complaints about the Internet Archive to Google as its own stats reveal that in only a tiny minority of cases does it ever act on them.
    Copyright holders would be better off sending complaints directly to the site itself but only if they target the correct content which is not always the case.
