Fuckin' lol

In a routine mass removal request, Warner Brothers has accidentally hit a bunch of totally legitimate websites, including their own. In the massive request, WB asked Google to remove links to websites by Amazon, Sky, and IMDB. It also requested removal of the official websites for Batman: The Dark Knight and The Matrix.

This is brilliant.

This is almost as good as the photographer suing getty images. Hate when these companies abuse the copyright laws they lobby to be setup and hope they get smoked by them.

Yikes. So Getty Images took the photographs that she had put out for free, and sold them? I mean, even charging a cover fee and stuff is pretty... lousy.

Does this qualify as admitting?

How exactly does someone report their own site as illegal? What were they smoking?

Classic case of left arm not knowing what right arm is doing. When organisations and corporations get to this size, one department will have no idea what the other is doing.

Hilarious.

They appear to contract a third party corporation to do the DMCA notices on their behalf. So I guess some poor intern thought the websites were too suspicious.

It's nice when these shitty companies get a dose of reality, in this case the reality that the current copyright system in the US is broken and outdated because of these companies trying to hoard IPs for eternity.
