Appetite for DMCA Takedowns

The notorious BIG…that’s Axl Rose, not the other one, is now demanding that Google remove the now infamous photos of his sweaty, pudgy face from a 2010 concert now associated with the “fat Axl Rose” meme from their search engines.

According to The Guardian, “Rose might feel the meme is detracting attention from Guns’n’Roses’ forthcoming tour, what with the memes about “sweet pie’o’mine”, or “take me down to bakery city’. But then again, most people probably wouldn’t have heard of it if he hadn’t started issuing DMCA takedown requests.”
