Google hits back at 'Dear Rupert' over search dominance claims

Except, half the time, Google seem to be taking them down of their own volition, without waiting for a takedown notice. In Germany they got taken to court by the equivalent of the MIAA, GEMA, because YouTube was displaying a link saying the GEMA had asked for the video to be removed, only they hadn't.

Google lost the case and now they say that they have removed the video as a precaution, because they haven't asked GEMA, whether they would object or not.
