As for a no-good asking
for removal, they can always, remove,
deploy the research resources and if they
were right (provable in Court right
that is), republish without the risk of
exactly why I have a problem with this. Too much of a chilling effect
Suppose company A or person B does some very bad things and bloggers
comment factually on this. Company A or person B then contacts Google and says
that the content is defamatory.
Should the onus be on the blogger to prove
in court that it isn't defamatory? I believe in most jurisdictions that the
onus would be on the one making the claim of defamation.
Should the onus be
on Google to judge what is and what isn't defamatory?
This goes well beyond
copyright ownership proof that comes into play with Youtube content. That is
often much less difficult to demonstrate.
