Google, once considered by some media companies as a rogue actor on the issue of copyright, is stepping up antipiracy efforts, the company said today.

On Google's public policy blog, Kent Walker, the company's general counsel wrote:


We'll act on reliable copyright take-down requests within 24 hours. We will build tools to improve the submission process to make it easier for rights holders to submit DMCA takedown requests for Google products (starting with Blogger and Web Search). And for copyright owners who use the tools responsibly, we'll reduce our average response time to 24 hours or less. At the same time, we'll improve our "counter-notice" tools for those who believe their content was wrongly removed and enable public searching of takedown requests.

We will prevent terms that are closely associated with piracy from appearing in Autocomplete. While it's hard to know for sure when search terms are being used to find infringing content, we'll do our best to prevent Autocomplete from displaying the terms most frequently used for that purpose.

We will improve our AdSense antipiracy review. We have always prohibited the use of our AdSense program on Web pages that provide infringing materials. Building on our existing DMCA takedown procedures, we will be working with rights holders to identify, and, when appropriate, expel violators from the AdSense program.

We will experiment to make authorized preview content more readily accessible in search results. Not surprisingly, we're big fans of making authorized content more accessible on the Internet. Most users want to access legitimate content and are interested in sites that make that content available to them (even if only on a preview basis). We'll be looking at ways to make this content easier to index and find.

"SOPA Support Goes Sour"

The Stop Internet Piracy Act is losing friends fast as website protests Wednesday directed the public's attention toward the proposed legislation. Sites like Google ran home-page links to information on SOPA, and sites like Wikipedia blacked out for the day in protest. Some members of congress have said the bill is as good as dead.
