Yahoo Started Censoring FilesTube Links

Yahoo Started Censoring FilesTube Links

It seems like filtering the Internet in favor of the entertainment industries becomes a growing trend, which includes online blocklists, along with domain names seizures of suspected pirate websites, and Google’s censoring of “infringing” queries. Today Yahoo! Messenger joined the team with starting filtering links to FilesTube, which is one of the largest media search engines.

This is what it would become for ordinary Internet users deciding to help the others find a highly discussed TV-show “Pioneer One” distributed for free: lots of people liked it so much that decided to share it with their friends by sending a FilesTube link to them in Yahoo! Messenger. Previously, it would have been considered a good idea, but since today Yahoo! will disagree. If you try to send a FilesTube link to your contacts in the Messenger application, you will soon realize that the link never reaches your friends. Instead, it goes directly into Yahoo’s dark hole. Interestingly enough, neither participant of the conversation appears to be alerted to such “feature”.

Those who not that familiar with the FilesTube, it is considered to be the largest meta-search engine for files hosted on cyberlocker services. The Polish-based search engine was launched 4 years ago and is currently serving millions users on a daily basis, with the number increasing day by day.

Naturally, Yahoo! Messenger users wonder why they are prohibited from sending the links to the site. In fact, FilesTube is just a meta-search engine which doesn’t even host any files, always abiding by the US DMCA by fulfilling takedown requests from rights owners. There seems to be no non-copyright related reason for the filtering, but at the same time links to similar services are not censored, which is quite weird. However, this is not the first time the filtering was that selective. Several months ago Google also started to arbitrarily block a number of piracy related keywords, but has left direct and just as popular alternatives untouched. Meanwhile, the owner of FilesTube is surprised to learn such news and recommends people to use other messengers that are really respectful of freedom of the web.

It doesn’t actually matter what the reason is for Yahoo! to monitor private talks and swallow FilesTube links – anyway, censorship is used with the sole purpose of protecting the interests of the creative industries.

menahunie avatarthey have not learned anything Yahoo and others. All they do is drive users away and to another search engine. The days of a central DNS and central search engines are limited and evolving into a swarm type of internet soon. It is being called cloud hosting and more.
