 AdWord advertising on copyright-infringing lyric websites

Lawyers representing the NMPA (National Music Publishers' Association), the leading trade association representing U.S. music publishers, have met with Google to discuss the problem of AdWord advertising on copyright-infringing lyric websites. They want to stop copyright infringers from making money. According to US Today, Google said in a statement: "We take copyrights very seriously. In accordance with our policy, we disable ads on websites in our content network when we are made aware that they appear next to copyrighted content. Copyright holders who find their copyrighted material appearing next to Google ads can find more information about the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) take-down requests on our AdSense website. Hundreds of thousands of website publishers responsibly abide by our policies and we're committed to preventing those who don't from using our program."
