(AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE) — Google on Thursday, May 24, began revealing details about requests for links to be removed from Internet search results on the grounds they lead to copyrighted material posted without permission.
Google added a copyright section to the online transparency report it launched two years ago to provide information about how often government officials ask for material to be removed from its online venues.
"The goal of the transparency report is to help users understand what we remove from search and why," Google senior copyright counsel Fred von Lohmann told AFP.

"We remove more search results for copyright reasons than for any other reason."
