Google has removed more than 3,000 million URLs – Unique Websites – in 2017 as part of its anti-piracy campaign, according to the Google How-To Anti Piracy Report.
Although, according to the document, piracy in the network has "declined worldwide" The search engine continued to remove these links for copyright owners.
The report, which contains the programs, policies and technologies used to combat the illegal use of content on the internet, also ensures that the revenues generated by the rights holders reach "the highest historical values"
This is evidenced by more than $ 3,000 million paid for content management through Content ID.
This system, which has been recognized as an "Innovative Management Tool," allows Google's collaboration with authors to create an extensive database of protected materials where you can compare any publication and determine its possible illegality.
For example, YouTube has invested more than $ 100 million in the Content ID implementation. And the results were positive because last year's advertising revenue exceeded the music industry to $ 1,800 million.
Google has removed more than 91,000 domains from the Display Network that "protected inappropriate content." The number of non-approved ads for alleged copyright infringement – or links to copyright sites – has risen to 10 million.
When Google Play, the application download platform, has detected that up to 250,000 apps have been removed in 2017.
To protect Disk Storage Services, there is also a full-time team.
In addition, Google has raised five principles on which to base its anti-piracy investment:
Create better legal alternatives: Because according to the report "it is much less interesting when it is easy to find legitimate alternatives."
Watch Money: Eliminating the income of criminal organizations that use piracy.
Be effective, efficient, and scalable.
Protect yourself from misuse.
