Google Faced a Flood of Fake DMCA Notices

Google Faced a Flood of Fake DMCA Notices

Everyone knows that Google has to process millions takedown requests from the rights owners, which are not all proper and valid, but there's also another problem with DMCA notices: spammers also submit a flood of them in the hope that it will indirectly drive traffic to online stores selling dubious and counterfeit goods.

It is known that rights holders and their representatives report millions of infringing links to the search giant day by day, year by year. This process is largely automated and no oversight is usually required. The drawback of this approach is that it sometimes leads to occasional mistake. Google, like many other companies, releases a transparency report for everyone to see which requests it receives and how many of them are satisfied and why. However, there is another problem: some bogus takedown notices are sent on purpose.

Apparently, spammers discovered Google’s takedown forms and managed to submit their own fake DMCA notices. Instead of trying to remove pages from the search results, they are using takedown forms to promote their own counterfeit software, clothing and other products. In other words, they don’t try to take anything down, but make an effort to generate links to their own websites, which offer regular spam content and products, including bodypart “enlargements”, plugs for medicine, sports jerseys, designer clothing and other merchandise, and even counterfeit copies of Microsoft software.

It became known that the spammers target many Google services, including Search, Blogger and Picasa. Although Google usually ignores them, you can find copies of the requests in the Chilling Effects archive and via Google’s Transparency Report.

In the meantime, security experts point out that it’s doubtful that such DMCA notices will be effective in driving traffic. For example, most URLs are not linked, and the Chilling Effect site itself is not indexed by the search engine at all.

The worst part is that the spam flood is not making Google’s job any easier. The tech giant already invests lots of resources in checking the millions of legitimate takedown requests, so processing a spam flood just adds to this already troubling task.
