Google UK Receives A 71 pct Rise In Removal Requests [bbc.co.uk]
|Google said it experienced a 71% jump in UK government and court requests to remove content from its web search, YouTube and other services. |
The figure relates to the period between January and June this year compared to the previous six months.
The search site said it received 65 requests for a total of 333 items to be removed over the period.
The US company said it fully or partially complied with 82% of the demands.

The "71%" statistic sounds like a huge amount of extra work for Google, until you read on to the "65 requests" part. I'm surprised it's that low.

I suspect it's that low because many people don't know how to contact Google.
