For this reason, the search engine giant has picked up the pace in its fight against such groups who continue to make false claims. This entails websites that are being taken down unnecessarily or downloads conducted in return for nothing but malware that gets embedded into the system unknowingly.
But enough is enough and the company has vowed to take them all to court with a long list of lawsuits coming into action. And in case it does prove to be successful, it’s going to be a huge breakthrough in terms of ensuring such endeavors are kept at bay immediately.
In particular, two leading scammer groups were discussed in detail and they entailed hundreds of people and companies. Google says the lawsuits are on their way and it’s about time it took action against such behavior.
The search engine giant mentioned how such lawsuits are truly effective and necessary in terms of creating the best legal precedent to tackle the matter because, in the end, it’s a top priority to ensure those using Google Bard are guaranteed the best privacy and safety out there.
Similarly, it shed light on how copyright laws are being twisted in the name of profits and this behavior has been going on for a tad bit too long, as mentioned in the firm’s recently published press release.
The first group in question is targeting a long list of users that are taken by surprise. They are those who know the user is interested in AI and therefore Bard so they manipulate them and the system to help pass on malware without anyone noticing.
Similarly, such fraudsters launch a huge number of pages across social media and run ads that keep on motivating individuals to have Bard installed. This is shocking as the latter is available for free to anyone and everyone who wishes to use it, the firm added. So such claims are bogus to begin with and no one should ever consider them to be true.
What the ads actually end up doing is misleading users toward malware installations that infect systems and accounts on social media. And it’s amazing how so much has been taking place for so long now.
We’ve been talking since April about how the search engine giant continues to file a whopping 300 cases regarding such takedowns and how scammers continue to mislead hundreds present all over the globe.
Google mentioned how it can prevent such scammers from creating fake domains to begin with through orders issued by the court and at the same time, forcing them to become disabled when it comes to registrars working across the country.
In case it achieves success along the way, Google sees this as a huge breakthrough and will end up serving as the best means for putting such frauds at bay shortly, whenever someone attempts to carry out the same.
Google also mentioned how there was another mighty group functioning in the country that kept on weaponizing the famous DMCA law. They put out fake claims of copyright through fraud accounts. And in the end, it just serves as major harm to businesses working as competitors in the growing and evolving tech industry.
Therefore, the firm feels their lawsuits can target such scammers who are involved in setting up dozens of fake accounts and then using them to produce a long list of fake copyright claims across the board.
Such claims are involved in getting rid of hundreds of thousands of websites, ruining business models that spent millions and long hours trying to get the website up and running in the first place.
Therefore, Google does appear confident and vows to remain steadfast in terms of ensuring users’ interests are safeguarded at all times while hoping that strict and immediate legal action can open people’s eyes before it’s too late.
Google says a huge point of this entire campaign is to raise awareness for public users because the DMCA was initially created to make sure people’s interests were kept a top priority but in this case, scammers are misusing it to achieve their gains.
