The RIAA has reached a new milestone in its ongoing efforts to get pirated content removed from the Internet. This week, the music industry group reported their 50 millionth URL to Google. Despite the search engine's swift removal policy, the RIAA sees pirated files reappearing almost immediately, calling it a 'Groundhog Day' for takedowns.
Despite the growing availability of legal music services in many countries, record labels are facing a constant stream of pirated music.
In an attempt to prevent stop these infringements, the RIAA and other music industry groups send millions of takedown notices to Internet services every month. Most of these requests are directed at Google.
