Online Takedown Requests: Don't let the quantity fool you!
Takedown requests are visualized after normalizing requests received by each country in 2012 by the proportion of the country's population in its prime crime-committing ages (15-19) in 2010. Zoom in on a country to see summary details of the requests by company. Surprisingly, some countries with a reputation for openness (repression) make far more (fewer) takedown requests than their populations would lead one to expect. Perhaps the requests from countries with a large number of requests are for "minor" issues. Or, maybe some countries prefer to make a small number of requests, each with very broad scope. Either way, our visualization says: don't let the quantity fool you!
