I'm not talking about legal precedence. I'm talking about Google's willingness to honor DMCA requests when the host that copied the content is a Google-owned property. They regularly approve requests when then infringing party is a site with -0- monetization.
AppSpot is not Copying the Muther Bleeping Content!
How F'ing Tough is it to Get?
I'm done with this one. Please, try to beat Google in court on it if you're right, please, try. Feel free. You can't find legal precedence and you won't be able to prove "bias" on the part of Google upholding a DMCA request, because you really, really don't get what proxy serving is and whether you can do anything about it legally or not.
Don't like your site being proxy served? Install some .htaccess rules.
Either way, please, quit complaining and saying how wrong Google is until you find an attorney who actually understands what's "acceptable" and what's "not acceptable" online, accepts your case and actually wins against Google.
If you can do that, then, cool you've got a great "told you so" story, but until then, quit talking about bias when the main person complaining about a DMCA not being honored in this thread can't even say WTF is happening so someone who actually understands how things work can understand it.
You started off earlier by saying if it was Google being served by AppSpot they would do something about it, then when I pointed out they are you changed your tune and said if it was a page they cared about they would, as if they don't care about their home page.
Please, get real, deal with reality and realize Google's allowing Google.com to be proxy served for a reason, and the reason they're letting it happen isn't because they have legal grounds to stop it and don't want to or feel like saying "Hey, you have to stop and your AppSpot account is cancelled.", really it's not, because it would be so easy to automate a check to see if Google.com was being proxy served and send an automated CD to the AppSpot user it's not even funny.
Really, if Google is being biased to their AppSpot system, then I hope you sue and I absolutely hope you win, but until then, since there's no legal precedence and people can't even say what they mean in this thread then I'm not seeing it personally, and understanding how things work and what's happening and stopping it on your end are the best solutions I can think of, because there's not "copying" going on with a proxy server any more than there is with framing.
