Why Google Is The New Pirate Bay

April 18, 2009

From Forbes

“Google now can and does do what the Pirate Bay has always done,” Edelman says. “And if they’re prosecuted, they would have much more interesting arguments in their defense.”

By searching for pirated music or video, Google users can easily scan a range of lesser-known pirate sites to dig up illicit content. Those looking for the upcoming film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, for instance, can search for “wolverine torrent.” The first result is a link to file-sharing site isoHunt, with a torrent tracker file that allows the user to download the full film. In fact, searches for “wolverine torrent” on Google have more than quadrupled since the movie file was first leaked to peer-to-peer networks on April 5, according to Google Trends.

Peter Moore says Pirates don’t deserve to be Sued

August 25, 2008

According to Peter Moore, Pirates should be allowed to do what they do without consequence. In an interview with Euro Gamer, Moore states “I’m not a huge fan of trying to punish your consumer. He then goes on to say “I think there are better ways of resolving this within our power as developers and publishers. Yes, we’ve got to find solutions. We absolutely should crack down on piracy. People put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into their content and deserve to get paid for it. But at the same time I think there are better solutions than chasing people for money”.
Oh Brother! Piracy = Crime = Punishment.
These guys have broken the law, why should they get off with no punishment.
