Submission + - Google: 99.95% of Recent 'Trusted' DMCA Notices Were Bogus (

AmiMoJo writes: In comments submitted to a U.S. Copyright Office consultation, Google has given the DMCA a vote of support, despite widespread abuse. Noting that the law allows for innovation and agreements with content creators, Google says that 99.95% of URLs it was asked to take down last month didn't even exist in its search indexes. “For example, in January 2017, the most prolific submitter submitted notices that Google honored for 16,457,433 URLs. But on further inspection, 16,450,129 (99.97%) of those URLs were not in our search index in the first place.”

No, just having 4 motors where one failure is catastrophic.

Quad copters are not more stable then helicopters, in fact it is the opposite. Quad-copters require constant small adjustments several times a second and connot be flown entirely manually. Quad copters are like the F117. they are inherently unstable and thus highly maneuverable. Also Quadcopters rarely have variable pitch propellers and thus cannot auto-rotate making them far more dangerous for passenger transport.
