UK’s RIAA Goes After Google Using the US DMCA

June 19th, 2010 06:48 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

An anonymous reader passes along a DMCA takedown notice directed at Google and authored by the British Phonographic Industry, Britain’s equivalent of the RIAA. P2pnet identifies the BPI as the outfit that “contributed to the British government’s Digital Ecomy bill, complete with its ACTA Three Strikes and you’re Off The Net element, with hardly a murmur from the UK lamescream media.” Are there any precedents for a UK trade organization attempting to use an American law to force an American company to take down links to UK-copyrighted material?
