When it comes to the number of URL copyright removal requests sent to Google, the rate in which the search engine is getting them is climbing a quite a rapid rate. It seems that, according to the newest transparency report data, Google has received 15,659,212 URL takedown requests based on copyright infringement during the week of November 19. That means Google is averaging about 2.2 million requests per day. That’s quite a handful of requests.
This is a huge number of requests, especially when you take into consideration that Google received 8.2 million requests for the week of November 17, 2014.
Google says that they have received 65,122,023 million URL copyright removal requests for 72,207 specified domains from 5,492 copyright owners during the last month.
The amount of Google takedown requests have grown 75 percent between 2013 and 2014, according to Torrent Freak, back in January.
