Someone from Google reads this list. (Hi.)
What happened? They made a mistake. Then they corrected it.
(We discovered the correction when a Well Known Scientology
Critic called me at Dana St. when we were getting organized to go
over there.) We met with software engineer Matt Cutts and had a
very productive discussion about the DMCA and Google's policy for
handling takedown requests.
Here's a photo of the Mountain View California Xenu Independent Study
Group and Matt: http://zgp.org/~dmarti/images/google_meeting.jpeg
Will Google always provide a copy of the complainant's letter to
the webmaster of the site that would be affected?
Will Google publish a list of DMCA takedowns it does?
Will Google drop the bland-sounding internal term PageRank(tm)
in favor of the more descriptive "Google Juice"?
(Everybody stopped running that lynx loop that says mean things
about Stanford, right?)
