Warner Brothers reports own site as illegal

Film studio Warner Brothers has asked Google to remove its own website from search results, saying it violates copyright laws.

It also asked the search giant to remove links to legitimate movie streaming websites run by Amazon and Sky, as well as the film database IMDB.

The request was submitted on behalf of Warner Brothers by Vobile, a company that files hundreds of thousands of takedown requests every month.

Google decided to not enforce the DCMA takedown. Which is strange: why should large companies be exempt from DCMA and get a proper hearing, whilst smaller companies just get taken down without any proper judgement?
