RIAA calls Google to block Piracy Links


Hello friend,

Yes, the CEO of Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has called on Google and other search engines to automatically block all links to copyright-infringing sites. It was a part of 'The future of Audio' speech. At the request the Google already removed 31,930 links to unlicensed contents. The search engine is how ever reluctant to block entire websites. The RIAA create this law before two years, but this gets on top only now. Till here it was a hidden law.

However, the RIAA has also claimed that Google's Transparency Report includes misleading use of statistics. The RIAA has complained that Google's  policy entails that even if links are taken down, they are necessarily kept down. The reports says that the Google in America will remove almost 1.5 million links for this new law. Experts calling this as 'Milestone in Copyrights'.

I hope you get the answer.
