French Court Sided with Search Engines over Torrent-Related Searches

French Court Sided with Search Engines over Torrent-Related Searches

The French court decided that Google and Bing don’t have to automatically filter "torrent" related searches to curb piracy. In the case filed by the local music industry group SNEP, the court decided that such a filter would be too broad, ineffective, and target legitimate content.

The music industry group, representing three French artists, demanded automated search engine filters from Google and Microsoft, claiming that when paired with the artist names, “torrent” related searches link to pirated material. In order to fight piracy, they demanded to design and implement a filter that would be able to block results for the keyword “torrent,” along with websites containing the same word in their domain name.

However, the High Court of Paris decided against SNEP. In their defense, Microsoft had warned that such filtering system would be imprecise, disproportionate and inefficient, and the court agreed. In its ruling, the court acknowledged that the law permits far-reaching anti-piracy measures, but pointed out that it’s also necessary to preserve the rights of individual Internet users, such as freedom of expression and communication.

In addition, the court recognized that the word “torrent” has many legitimate uses, and so does the BitTorrent protocol, which by itself is a neutral communication technology. This is why blocking everything “torrent”-related would lead to censoring legal content as well. The case against Google was dismissed on the grounds that it would only protect the interests of 3 artists, while the preventive anti-piracy measures have to protect a wider range of copyright holders under French law.
