Google Google has released a treasure trove of data about takedown requests regarding possible copyright violations. What may surprise some - but is actually kind of logical if you think about it - is that most requests, by far, come from Microsoft. You'll be surprised about the total amount of requests, and looking at some of them in more detail, it becomes obvious just how much certain organisations would abuse takedown power if they had it.

Not really, it is not the job or responsibility of a search engine to censor what results are returned on a search, the responsibility lies solely with the owners of the individual sites.
