Blogger Hasn’t Removed Other Blogs Violating Copyright

There is a big discussion going on this morning regarding Blogger taking down the Facebook Secrets blog that posted the leaked Facebook code.

I’ve got a better and far more important question, why the major inconsistency in what the Blogger team takes down?

On May 11, I wrote a post about a large splog hosted on the Blogger platform. Why hasn’t the Blogger team removed this splog yet? Why aren’t they being proactive when my Feedburner panel clearly shows this as an uncommon use? Why is Blogger apparently only responding to the requests of companies with significant legal teams? When will Blogger protect the interests of all blog content equally?

UPDATE: For another point of view, please visit my recent interview with Barry Schwartz regarding splogs.
