Google Involved in File-Sharing Lawsuit

Over the past half a decade BitTorrent search engines have claimed that they are providing the same services as Google, a world’s famous search engine enabling Internet users to find data scattered around the web. Meanwhile, the search giant itself kept silence on the matter, until now. Today Google has involved itself in the MPAA vs. isoHunt case. However, that hasn’t pleased isoHunt’s owner.

The court battle between isoHunt and the MPAA lasts for 5 years already, and the site’s owner, Gary Fung, is now up for an appeal against permanent injunction which demands him to either filter search results or terminate activities in the US completely. Within the appeal, 2 months ago the site filed its opening appellate brief to the Court, asking for better protection for all search engines, including Google, which may face similar censorship threats.

While Google was watching the legal battle between the MPAA and isoHunt, it nevertheless didn’t make any effort to interfere, until last week. Unexpectedly, the search giant got involved in the motion for summary judgment appeal: Google filed a third party testimony at the Appeal Court.

There it said that the case raises issues about the interpretation and application of the safe-harbor provisions of the DMCA, in which Google has a strong interest. Both isoHunt and the MPAA were asked by the search giant for their consent in filing the testimony. What is more interesting, the movie studios didn’t invite Google to participate, as opposed to isoHunt. However, it doesn’t mean that the testimony was in support of the BitTorrent search engine.

Instead, the search giant specifically stated that Google agreed with the District Court’s ruling that isoHunt is guilty of copyright infringement. In fact, Google confirmed that isoHunt is a true “pirate” site and made no objections against the final decision of the judge. However, the company was worried about the reasoning the judge used to reach this conclusion.

Google claimed that there was evidence that isoHunt encouraged its members to download illegal material, but the question was ignored of whether such encouragement led to direct violations or not. The company admits that it wants to address this issue because it may otherwise lead to a negative outcome for itself.

isoHunt’s owner appeared to be disappointed, but it’s up to the Appeal Court to decide whether Google’s brief will be taken into account.

Brynn217 avatarThis means that the actual question, did they commit a crime? If it cannot be proved that anyone infinged, they have can you be guilty of infrigment? I can sit and scream all day long on the street, Kill him, Kill Him.. or any other such thing, like maybe a website devoted to promoting hate or anything else for that matter... The fact that they may have encourged infringment is a 1st admendment freedom of speech. If they can prove that it occured on their site because of such encourgement would be the only way to make them compicent in the the crime...

carlbandit avatarIs it just me that thinks, we should have 1 month, where we all use Google and no other torrent site to get our torrents, then let google say that the only reason people download torrents is because sites such as isohunt tell us too

Google vs MPAA, my money is on Google
