Warner Brothers has just reported all their sites as ‘illegal’ to google?

Do you believe Warner Brothers just told to one of biggest search engines:

 

Block the content of my own web sites and associates.”

Then, how it is that Warner Brothers has chosen such as absurd strategy?

First of all, we should make clear that large companies often hire external companies to manage different areas of their company (Outsourcing). In this case, Warner Brothers hired Vobile Company (as Torrent Freak mentions) to search and generate reports for illegal content links that are not authorized by the producer Warner Brothers.

Vobile shortly made more than 13 million requests for the removal of links to Google. But among them they included links to IMDB, SKY, Amazon and Warner’s own official websites!

Unfortunately, these errors are very common” said the news portal.

Warner was trying to make it harder for the public to find illegal links with which could watch its contents, these originally were its intentions,” continues Ernesto Van der Sar, founder of Torrent Freak.

Thanks to technology  we can automate several processes, including searches for links infringing content from other sites and run the status report, companys are no exceptions and to make clear how big this problem is, there are a few examples of famous films which resulted severely affected by Vobile’s mistake.

Movie: The Darknight
Movie: The Dark knight

 

Movie: The Matrix
Movie: The Matrix

 

Movie: The Lucky One
Movie: The Lucky One

 

Perhaps if we could restore databases using whitelists that do not disrupt the contents of Wanerbros.com and amazon.com we could recover these links, but, so far, is not done anything about it.
We do not know what Warner Brothers will say about this situation, most logical is Vobile will suffer a huge repercussion for having made an error of such magnitude.

    This is why it is stupid to rely entirely on scripts and software.
    How many times has Amazon or Airlines posted the wrong price and customers have been left wanting.
    It also serves them right for always wanting someone else to solve their problems.

    This is one of those situations where you would expect someone to, even with a quick glance, say “wait a minute…”

      One day the automated systems all with everything else that is electronic based is going to crash.
      Then the only folks that are going to be able to survive are the “old” people because they no longer teach the old way of doing this in school let alone out side of school.
      scary

    wow, the fact that their sites were still down for this article does make me think vobile is unlikely to get many jobs in the future

    Maybe someone should have looked over the list of links at least briefly to see what was going to be sent first. Someone is going to be in big trouble on this one.

    To prevent “examples of famous films which resulted severely affected by Vobile’s mistake.” errors, remember this lesson.

    The publicity generated from this mistake is probably better and cheaper than any viral ad campaign so I hope they go easy on the company instead of trying to double-dip and take it to the cleaners.

    That is totally stupid. How come Warner Bros treat the number 1 search engine aka. “google” this way, that’s horrible.
    There is a solution anyway: Use any other search engine other than Google.

    So easy to make mistakes yet so difficult to clean up the mess after. You would think there would be safeguards to avoid the issues to start with. But I guess until the mistake happens, you don’t know what to safeguard against.
