Copyright system is broken

The MPAA claims that in a 6 month period it sent 11 million takedown notices to search engines and another 13 million to sites directly.

There are those who argue this demonstrates that copyright infringers have the upper hand. But keep in mind these are just takedown notices, the entertainment industry doesn’t have to prove any infringement took place, let alone operate with good faith or care. Many have noted that illegitimate takedown requests are common, mostly because there are almost no consequences for abuse.
