Google vai punir sites que recebem notificações DMCA
Google Updates Its Search Algorithm: Will Start Punishing Sites With Too Many DMCA Takedown Notices
Google just announced that, starting next week, its search algorithm will start taking a new signal into account: the number of valid copyright removal notices it receives for a given site. According to Google, “this ranking change should help users find legitimate, quality sources of content more easily.” The idea here is obviously to punish pirate sites by pushing links to them down on Google’s search results pages and to appease copyright holders who often claim that Google doesn’t do enough to remove links to copyrighted material.
Since it started giving rights owners the ability to report potential copyright infringement in 2009, Google says, it’s been getting “much more data by copyright owners about infringing content online.” Just over the last 30 days, for example, it received copyright removal notices for more than 4.3 million URLs. That’s more than in all of 2009 together. Most of these notices in the last 30 days concerned content owned by RIAA members, followed by Microsoft, a group called Froytal Services Ltd. and NBC Universal.
In its announcement today, Google notes that users can always file “counter notices” when they believe their content was wrongly removed from its index. Google stresses that it won’t actually remove any pages from its search results unless it receives a valid copyright removal notice from the rights owner. Still, chances are that this update will push legitimate links to sites like filestube.com, downloads.nl and isohunt.com to the bottom of Google’s search results pages.

And Youtube was never seen again... Could there be any site that even comes close in the number of DMCA notices? Even within an order of magnitude?
HOW WILL THE CONTROL THIS: companies that have hard competition do anything to stop traffic from their competitors, even by claiming a copyright infringement - how will google know what is correct? it will be a disaster!
Yes - YouTube videos are a big thing - if the videos are Copyright, then why they are released in API and why there is an embed option enabled for it? - Huge filtering should be done from YouTube too.
So I won't find YouTube anywhere in Google search results? Awesome!

NASA Youtube video removed due to copyright takedown request
YouTube restored the video a few hours after it was taken offline, but NASA administrator Bob Jacobs said that incidents like this occur most months.
We spend too much time going through the administrative process to clear videos slapped with needless copyright claims. YouTube seems to be missing a ‘common sense’ button to its processes, especially when it involves public domain material paid for by the American taxpayer.
— Bob Jacobs, NASA Deputy Associate Administrator for Communications, speaking to MotherBoard
Jacobs lamented the lack of consequences for rightholders who abuse the takedown system.
There seems to be few consequences for companies that engage in such activities, which often include legitimate news organizations. We do agree that people who make false copyright claims against our material should be held accountable, regardless of their automated systems.
Scripps Local News went on to publish the following apology:
We apologize for the temporary inconvenience experienced when trying to upload and view a NASA clip early Monday morning. We made a mistake. We reacted as quickly as possible to make the video viewable again, and we’ve adjusted our workflow processes to remedy the situation in future.
— Scripps spokesperson, speaking to The Daily Dot
This is not the first time that a NASA video has been removed as a result of a mistaken takedown request from Scripps Local News. In April, a video of a Boeing 747 carrying Space Shuttle Discovery was removed following a takedown request from the company.
