Google to Account for Valid Copyright Removal Notices in Search Ranking

Sites with high numbers of removal notices may appear lower in our results. This ranking change should help users find legitimate, quality sources of content more easily—whether it’s a song previewed on NPR’s music website, a TV show on Hulu or new music streamed from Spotify.

Finally we may be able to do something about crap like Huffington Post. It’s great to see that there’s now a proper recourse for unethical websites in this digital age.
