On Google Jets, Google Bras & Removing Michael Wolff's Talk From Google

by , Comments points to a transcript of keynote speech by Vanity Fair columnist Michael Wolff, where he tells a story of Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin discussing the coolness of owning your own 767 while traveling on the private jet of an unnamed billionaire. The duo also discuss the idea of Google branching off into making underwear and bras. OK then.

If that's not strange enough, you'll note that before you get to the actual transcript, the site hosting it is printing correspondence telling it to remove the transcript because of copyright issues. The site obviously disagrees.

Meanwhile, a search for wolff google shows how a similar DMCA complaint has probably gotten that same listing taken out of Google. Note the bottom of the page:

In response to a complaint we received under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 1 result(s) from this page. If you wish, you may read the DMCA complaint for these removed results.

The complaint, by the way, has yet to actually be posted at Chilling Effects. For more on how DMCA takedown disclosure works, see my Spam Rules Require Effective Spam Police article.

Postscript: Some background on the transcript removal is here: Michael Wolff's speech.
