[TF] Music Industry Mulls Suing Google Over “Pirate” Search Results

post #1 of 150

Two months ago the RIAA and IFPI accused Google of massively profiting from piracy and obstructing efforts of rightsholders to reduce the availability of illegal content.

Thus far, this row between Google and the entertainment industries has largely taken place behind closed doors, but a confidential document circulating among music industry executives shows that a lawsuit is also being considered.
Quote:
In other words, IFPI accuses Google of antitrust practices by failing to censor its search results in favor of the music industry. Strong words, and quite unprecedented if a lawsuit does indeed get filed.

A “Voluntary Code of Practice” suggested by the entertainment industries last month revealed that the IFPI and RIAA want all search engines to de-list popular file-sharing sites such as The Pirate Bay, and give higher ranking to ‘legal’ alternatives.

Today we learned that if Google doesn’t give in to these demands, an unprecedented lawsuit may follow.

I am in no way advertising or advocating piracy but this would be an epic and unprecedented lawsuit that would have massive ramifications. They are trying to censor the internet in an attempt to prevent piracy much like other countries do.

I would hope that Google wouldn't bow down, fight the good fight and establish precedent.
