British Government Warned Tech Giants over Piracy

British Government Warned Tech Giants over Piracy

The UK government has warned Google, Microsoft and Yahoo over the issue of digital piracy, saying that if the search engines fail to stop directing Internet users to pirate sites, they can see a legislative approach taken against them.

Apparently, the British government is not just ready to morally support the content industries, but also sponsor the fight with piracy. The UK police unit is definitely showing no signs of losing interest – for example, they have just arrested another streaming site operator on behalf of video rightsholders. The UK government admitted they have given £2.5 million to support the anti-piracy campaign. The agency is working with industry groups on the list of copyright infringers, which identifies websites that deliberately and consistently breach copyright.

However, identification of “notorious” portals is only one part of the puzzle, because they also need to be dealt with. The entertainment industry believes that the pirates love money, not music, and only the potential to get easy money attracts them to the industry. If the police take away their profits, they will lose their reason for being. However, it is not only up to the authorities and content industry to deal with this issue.

The UK government put major search engines on notice, saying that they play an important role in the fight. So, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo have all received letters from the government asking them to cooperate with the creative industry to stop search results directing people to pirate websites. But this time it was not just an ask – the authorities made it perfectly clear that if the tech giants fail to show real progress, the UK government will seek a legislative approach. The content industries claimed that “companies should be the partners of copyright owners, not their masters”.

As for the country’s government, it seems to believe that in the campaign against piracy, the government, music industry and tech companies are “three sides of the same triangle”. However, these expectations of togetherness may be not justified, as only time will tell if the search engines would be willing to take voluntary action to support it.

Embolism avatarFor the British Government that cannot manage its own country to do the Americans dirty work in trying to control what ISP`s do and control the internet under threats of legal action and takedowns is stupidity at best since the site will just pop up again elsewhere and it is not for the ISP`s to say who can use public servers or for the thought police to say what we can and cannot do on the web.As for seach engines Microsoft already have 73 fusion centres dedicated to monitoring mr and mrs America so can count on them to support the corporations who own the copyrights being infringed.

metazip avatarMore than 1 way to sidestep this government intrusion. They're just too stupid to recognize it as it stares them in their faces. It can be done without illegal downloading, in fact without downloading at all.

Why is it the NFL now wants the recording stars to pay them with their royalties from future sales of concerts and albums?

The above comments are all spot on. The internet is free and always will be, the governments...not so much...

Mr_T_Cat avatar@2 Sp are you prepared to pay more NI contributions to put more money into the NHS? We have the BEST free at the point of need medical system in the world. Or would you rather have a system like the USA. Then you really would be complaining. You really dont know just how good our system is.

ivorbigun avatar@7 He wasn't knocking the NHS so get off your high horse, he was merely inferring that 2.5 million freely given to these 'tards to support already MEGA RICH media corporations would be better spent had it been used in a cash strapped struggling public service such as the NHS.
