Viz is reponsible for 5% of all of Google's URL takedown requests for copyright violation.

It should also be mentioned that it is not that Viz.

This Viz is "Viz Media", the largest publisher of Japanese manga comics in the English language, based in the USA.

Google has posted a report on request from companies to take down certain websites that have been guilty of breaking copyright law. 3,981,648,854 requests have been made by various companies to remove certain URLs.

Out of those, Viz Media was the single largest book publisher on the list, with 206,531,563 requests to remove material. It was the fourth largest number of requests overall, the top three being member companies from the record industries of Britain, Mexico and Brazil.
