Google targeted by BPI

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

What with the World Cup and the Budget it seems that the matter of internet piracy has been left off the agendas of many people.

But that is not so, as the body that is charged with protecting the interests of the music industry in the UK, the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), is about to demonstrate as it goes up against the mighty Google.

The complaint is that Google has allowed listings on the search engine that direct users to sites that contain copyrighted music that is owned by BPI members.

The BPI is demanding that Google removes links to around nine file sharing sites which contain illegal links to thousands of songs.

Usually Google would simply take down links of this nature, but the BPI appears to making more of an issue in this case.
