Porn site moans about displaying its take down notices

Written by Nick Farell

Take down our take down
A porn site, which has been sending out take-down notices against companies which display its content, is issuing take down notices against those which display them.

Perfect 10 has been suing Google since 2005. In 2007, a federal appeals court rendered a far-reaching decision, saying search engines like Google were not infringing copyrights by displaying thumbnails and hyperlinking to Perfect 10’s perfect babes.

However part of the case, originally filed in 2005, is back before the San Francisco-based appeals court. Now Perfect 10 claims that Google’s forwarding of Perfect 10’s takedown notices to the Chilling Effects Clearinghouse website constitutes copyright infringement.

Chilling Effects collects takedown notices and has published thousands of them for scholarly research. Perfect 10 claims Google’s actions amount to copyright infringement because Perfect 10’s takedown notices include the nude pics.

We wonder if the take down of the take down notice will also be subject to a take down notice.
