Microsoft mistakenly asks Google to block the BBC, Wikipedia, US government webpages
Last July, Microsoft France filed a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) takedown notice to Google, requesting that the search engine removed pages that were infringing on its products. Unfortunately, there appears to have been an error in whatever system Microsoft uses to detect infringement, as the notice points to a number of seemingly innocent sites. Pages from BBC News, TechCrunch, BuzzFeed, Wikipedia, AMC Theatres, and the US government’s Department of Health and Human services (HSS) were all listed as infringing Microsoft’s “Windows 8 Beta.”
