Pro-business watchdog targets Google for enabling video piracy

By John Timmer | Published: September 26, 2007 - 11:57PM CT

Google's doing nothing about rampant copyright violations and may have become the storage medium of choice for movie pirates. That's the conclusion of an open letter (PDF) from the National Legal and Policy Center, a pro-business watchdog group.... Front Page
"Though all men live in ignorance before mystery,
they need not live in darkness...
Justice is foundation and Mercy ETERNAL

"All that we do is touched by Ocean
Yet we remain on the shore of what we know."
Richard Wilbur

Google does appear to pull pirate videos, perhaps not as quickly as they could. But, that's just a cat and mouse game. The same video will be uploaded again, by others. This game must be good for their advertising revenues.

If they were to automatically block specific videos, I'm sure their earnings would fall significantly. It must be possible to do this automatically, with at least a moderate effect.
