(The way I read it, there were 1,406 anti-piracy organizations plus 1,825 individuals).
I think Google have brought this on themselves:
Since Panda they seem to be placing a big premium on uniqueness of content, while still being hopeless at differentiating original publishers from scrapers.
What did they think was going to happen? Obviously webmasters are going to start demanding that infringing copies of their work are removed from the index.
Perhaps we should all get our DMCA requests in quickly before Google decide not to bother responding to them.
