There's a company make big bucks for "DMCA removal services" and what they do is search with Google itself to find even a mention of a trademark. They then send Google DMCA noticed and next thing you know, all mentions of a certain brand name seem to have disappeared.
We've had to send counter-notices because of this one company 7 times now and these were all positive reviews of a brand name!
Watch YouTube drop off the Google rankings. NOT. :)
Google should practice what they preach. YouTube probably has one of the highest rates of valid DMCA notices on the entire web. If the algo was really not biased, we *SHOULD* see YouTube drop off of all search results.
What about Blogspot? I'm sure they're also high up there next to YouTube.
