RIAA PRESIDENT WANTS GOOGLE TO TAKE DOWN MORE LINKS, DUH…


He made a speech as part of a Congressional hearing on ‘The Future Of Audio’ yesterday, and indicated that he would like search engines to automatically block all links to websites which notoriously enable copyright infringement, such as The Pirate Bay. Google has always resisted blanket takedown requests aimed at entire websites, arguing that goes way beyond its obligations under America’s Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

But, Sherman says, advertising agencies have drawn up black lists of entire websites to ensure they don’t inadvertently buy ad space alongside unlicensed content, and he thinks search engines should have a similar approach to those websites that have, through one process or another (maybe a judicial one) been shown to be liable for contributory copyright infringement.
