|Why isn't there a way to report search results for DMCA violations?||Spiderfly Studios||5/4/12 9:12 AM|
I have a new Android app in the market. From time to time I like to do a google search to find out if and what people are saying about the app. Whenever I do a search, nearly every single result takes you to a site where the app has been pirated and given away for free. Yes, I can file DMCA claims for some of the sites in question, but only for those hosting within the U.S. A lot of these pirates/hackers have their sites overseas.
The point here is that by showing all of these results, Google isn't helping to stop this problem. To me it feels more like they are only helping them.
Come on Google...if someone is using your DRM to protect their app, paid you to have it in the android market, gives you 30% of all the sales...then you should do our due diligence by at least providing a way for us to report search results and have them removed.

Spiderfly Studios, there is a way to report alleged violations of copyright in Google Web Search results. You can find the general Web Search removal request page here which will walk you through it: http://support.google.com/bin/static.py?hl=en&ts=1114905&page=ts.cs
