Warner Bros. flags own site for piracy, orders Google to censor pages

7 09 2016
Warner Brothers ordered Google to remove several of its own Web pages from search results on the grounds they infringed the media giant’s copyright.

A posting on the Lumen database of cease and desist letters revealed the bizarre requests, which were sent by monitoring company Vobile on behalf of Warner Brothers.

It asked for the official pages of Batman: The Dark Knight and The Matrix films to be censored by Google under the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA.) A few days earlier,  according to TorrentFreak, Warner Brothers had requested that the official Web page for movie The Lucky One should be removed from Google’s search results in the same way.
