Google changing stance on pirating/censorship (follow the $)

Posted 10 February 2011 - 02:55 PM

FOUND HERE

"As usual, Google's precise position on these issues is hard to pinpoint. The search giant has a long history of warring with copyright owners. The most significant case was a three-year-long court battle against Viacom, which accused Google of encouraging copyright violations at YouTube. Google won a decision last year in federal court but Viacom has appealed.
In the last year, however, Google has appeared more willing to set up roadblocks to Web piracy. In December, the search giant announced it would start booting alleged copyright violators off AdSense, the company's successful advertising program. Google has also begun blocking terms associated with piracy from appearing in the search engine's Autocomplete function.
The changes occurred as Google is trying to license music and film content for services such as Google TV and an upcoming streaming-music offering."

That auto-complete thing still needs some work, possibly in other areas than piracy as well

Great test! We should have a contest to see who can get the most insane auto-complete screen capture :) 'how to abduct and sell people in to...'
