Google "What is interesting is that you can use the new system to play around and notice that Microsoft doesn't always seem to take down from its search engine, Bing, the same links that it orders Google to takedown." Funny, but since Microsoft outsources their takedown requests to a different company, most likely just a case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing.

Member since:

Thanks for the clarification, it seems that you're right. The article doesn't explicitly state this, however, and could be written much more clearly. Not only is giving one example regarding Xbox 360 games not necessarily indicative of the overall pattern, even that example is ambiguously worded:

"In this case, Marketly had sent a takedown to Google demanding the removal of a bunch of URLs from its index concerning a variety of XBox 360 games, including DiRT 2. The 20th URL listed goes to a page on TorrentRoom."

I didn't read "a bunch of URLs...concerning a variety of XBox 360 games" as necessarily meaning torrent links, etc. Yes, I know that the very next sentence says "goes to a page on TorrentRoom". I stand by statement that this could be more clearly phrased; and again, one example does not indicate the overall pattern. They should just state the specific pattern plainly and clearly.

But I dug further into this after reading your comment, and based on my own research it seems like you are correct. Thanks for the correction.
