Google Erronously Removes PirateBay for a While

Google erronously removed the homepage of torrent tracker from its results. By now it’s back in. What happened? Well, at first Google blamed it on a DMCA takedown request that “erroneously listed, and as a result, this URL was accidentally removed”. Later they said, as CNet reports, that the removal “appears to be an internal error and not part of a DMCA request.”

[Hat tip to Juha-Matti and Waxy!]
