A Thorough Data Analysis of Google’s Pirate Filter by @ericvanbuskirk

Last week, Google began releasing its Pirate update; a penalty against what it called “notorious” piracy sites violating copyright laws. The first “Pirate” filter rolled out in August 2012. It purportedly caught websites with large numbers of complaints submitted against them for copyright infringements. For two years, copyright advocates cried foul, asserting the penalty — which is similar to better known algorithm updates like Penguin and Panda — was more of a tap than the slap they hoped to see websites publishing pirated media face.
