Copyright Bot DMCA's Warner Brothers Website

If you've ever wondered why "Shoot first, ask questions later" was considered a bad idea by Pirates like myself, the following story is one of them. It seems that anti-piracy outfit Vobile has auto-reported many links to authorised content, including those of its trading partners, to Google for infringement under the DMCA and requested that the links be removed from its search index.

I realise that checking links first can be problematic, particularly if there are loads of them, but wouldn't it be a good idea to whitelist the domains of legitimate purveyors prior to attempting to get them delisted from the search engine results?
