So if you think about it, Takedown Piracy is probably a one-man shop, or at least it appears to be. Yet Takedown Piracy submitted over 400,000 DMCA takedown notices to Google last month. So if this guy Nate Glass works about a 10-hour workday 5 days a week, that's about 215 work-hours a month. So Nate is sending out about 1,860 DMCA takedown notices per hour, or about one DMCA takedown notice every two seconds. You tell me, do you think Nate is doing his homework on those notices?
The Courts have held that before someone issues a DMCA takedown notice, they have to make a determination whether the use of they copyrighted material is a 'fair use.' Does anyone think that Nate Glass and his
Takedown Piracy is a shakedown racket plain and simple. Don't let the smoke and mirrors fool you. They might not get paid directly by the innocents that they shake down, but they are profiting from bogus copyright trolling just the same.
