Google is facing a storm of criticism for deleting six of the biggest music blogs on its Blogger service, including their entire archives. Google says the deletions came under its DMCA policy: “When we receive multiple DMCA complaints about the same blog, and have no indication that the offending content is being used in an authorized manner, we will remove the blog.” What’s causing the storm is that a.) the bloggers are protesting they had permission to host all the music on their blogs, and b.) they also say they weren’t given enough warning to file a DMCA counter-claim.
