The categories of content that Google will delete from search results are generally kept to a minimum. Intellectual property is one of them.
Taking it straight from the source (the US government): Your defense against intellectual property theft is provided by copyright. "Copyright is a form of protection grounded in the U.S. Constitution and granted by law for original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression. Copyright covers both published and unpublished works.” Removals of Google search results have increased dramatically over time. Requests to eliminate these results increase as Google indexes more content and users depend more on search results. Google has the capacity to manage billions of requests at any given moment.
Consider a situation where your copyrights are violated. Let's say you wrote a blog post that was published on another blog without your consent or any mention of you.
Perhaps because their blog is easier to search, when someone searches for the subject of the blog, their post comes up at the top of the results, giving the impression that they created and are the owner of the information rather than you.
This presents a serious issue for you for obvious reasons. Contacting the publisher and asking them to remove the content—not the search engine—is the first step in having the content removed from search results. The search engine neither owns the content nor is it disseminating any of it on its website.
Therefore, you must start by learning who published the content. You'll need to get in touch with the blog's host, not the author. You can contact the publisher after locating them using a website like WhoIsHostingThis.com by sending them a link to the original content along with the dates it was published and documentation proving that you are the content's owner. Always present your requests in a polite and straightforward manner.
Because they respect their own reputation and do not want to be associated with intellectual property theft, many websites will remove the information. The same frequently holds true for corporate or news websites, which rely heavily on honesty and authenticity to attract visitors. You might encounter websites that do not adhere, though. They frequently believe they are exempt from compliance with the law since they are in nations other than the US.
There are alternative options for handling the content if the publisher of the copyrighted material refuses to comply with your requests. Google frequently works with users to remove information from search results, especially in cases of true copyright violation.
Keep in mind that Google is not removing the content itself. It is still present and accessible if a user visits the original page where the infringement-related content is hosted; it is simply being removed from search results.
The best course of action in this situation is to file a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) complaint against the website through Google, which will have the search results removed from Google. This can also be used for Google's subsidiaries like YouTube and Blogger due to the company's scale and the other businesses it owns and manages.
