    1.25 million URL's requested to be removed - is that unique URL's or is it possible that there has been duplication with more than one company reporting the same sites?

    Unique URLs being a specific page, there is ofc less sites and often these removal requests are filed in a singe, related report.

    The most interesting thing here, for me, is that the most targeted site has under 0.1% of the complaints. There are clearly a huge number of sites out there that people are trying to combat.

    Interesting that you choose to use the word 'culprit' which has negative connotations under English law. I'd suggest that Microsoft are quite within their rights to protect their copyright.

    Fair play to Google for handling this task efficiently. It's a hidden cost that they bear which I never appreciated before.

    Yes, *their* copyright, not articles for which they don't have a copyright to, which they frequently demand sites take down.

    This is why DMCA should be taken out the back and shot.
