US court decision will destroy the internet, roar Google, Facebook et al


I don't know, sounds like a pretty good approach to me. It should do a good job discouraging Google et al from trying to filter for copyrights, and that's a major win.

If Google et al want to do something useful, they should start referring all of those bogus DMCA takedown notices for prosecution, because those things are certified to be correct under penalty of perjury. Make a deal with the prosecutors that if they'll actually go after a few of the bogus DMCA filers, Google won't start submitting a million or so requests a day for prosecution.
