MegaUpload doesn’t care about Google filtering its name from Autocomplete. Moreover, the service has already been doing its best to diminish their relationship as much as possible. When commenting on the event, MegaUpload repeats its thoughts that Google is actually the one guilty of hosting the largest index of illegal material throughout the world.
Just a few days ago Google has suddenly decided to make good on its promise to prevent terms related to piracy from Autocomplete, which was part of the giant’s goal for “Making Copyright Work Better Online”. Nevertheless, the terms Google has decided to censor in Autocomplete appeared to be quite optional – for example, it did ban uTorrent, Rapidshare, and MegaUpload, but didn’t do the same with The Pirate Bay or Vuze.
After MegaUpload was asked to comment on Google censoring its name from appearing n Autocomplete, the service came up with a short respond saying “We don’t care”. MegaUpload HQ said that was great news for them, because they were actually making it hard for the giant’s crawler to index MegaUpload links for a few years now.
The statistics they provided revealed that Rapidshare got the largest search volume of cyberlockers, but MegaUpload was larger in terms of traffic and members. This result they achieved without Google, because the service prefers the links of its members to remain private. For the same reason they don’t have a search feature on the website.
In other words, when it comes down to it, the cyberlocker shrugged off the search engine censoring its name from appearing in Autocomplete; moreover, it claimed to have been working hard to diminish their relationship as much as possible. This may be a wise move on their part, because this way they obviously reduce visibility of the service, and consequently potential for complaints by rights owners.
In addition, the cyberlocker also repeated the comment it made after the USCC blasted MegaUpload for being a “rogue site”, that it’s Google that hosts by far much more illegal material than any other service throughout the world. The service announced that it is unfairly finds itself on the radar of the US entertainment industry while Google is hosting the largest index of illegal content ever.

|Google doesn't "host" any content. They just create an index of content making it easier to locate it throughout the internet. That's how they get away with what they do. If they actually hosted the content, meaning they have servers that house the files people directly download, then yeah... they'd be just as liable for the illegal content.|
