removed from Google search results due to DMCA take down request

You might have already noticed this: Searching “NewPipe” via Google will yield plenty information about the project, but a link to the official website is missing. This is because Google submitted to a DMCA takedown notice from a French record label, “Because Music”. The notice demands removing our homepage from their search listings along with a set of other domains completely unrelated to our project. The DMCA takedown notice was published in the Lumen database by Google themselves.

The team is currently discussing what to do about the situation. We are considering taking legal action. If you are a lawyer and have experience with this and would like to help us, please contact us via email (team(at)

The website is still accessible at and appears to still be listed on DuckDuckGo.

I can still find it on google without any problems

Many people are also reporting this in the blog post comment section :

In the Lumen database, they say :

  1. - 1 URL

So it means that they have only deleted the landing page but not their FAQ page, the Donate page, etc.

Atleast it still shows the NewPipe FDroid app page lol.
