The Internet giant pointed out in a report that it removed from the search engine more than 3,000 million links to sites with content that infringed copyrights. It also removed more than 250,000 applications from its Google Play virtual store for the same reason during 2017.
In this regard, he emphasized that their policies “prohibit applications that infringe copyright, promote illegal streaming or try to deceive users by impersonating other applications.”
Regarding YouTube, the company indicated having invested “more than 100 million dollars in Content ID”, a copyright management tool that compares the content that people upload to that video platform with a large database of copyrighted material. “If it finds a match, the owners of the material in question can track it, monetize it, or retire it,” he explained.
