Google, the largest search engine throughout the globe, has long been facing the complaints from rights owners, who say that the site should do more to filter results containing links to copyright infringing content. Now Google decided to address their concerns and announced the changes to be implemented within the next few months. The search engine believes that those changes will make it harder to find infringing content on the Internet.
Google admitted on its official blog that as the web has grown, a number of issues connected to infringing material rapidly increased. Although the engine has always responded expeditiously to rights owners’ requests to delete such material from its services, with rapidly increasing the number of requests it had to work out new ways to effectively address the problem. More precisely, Google plans 4 major changes to do so.
First of all, the service promised to respond to reliable copyright takedown demands within 24 hours. Google is going to build instruments in order to improve the submission process and make it much easier for copyright owners to submit DMCA takedown requests. So, if the rights holders use those instruments responsibly, Google will reduce its average time of response to 24 hours or less. Simultaneously, the search engine promises to improve its “counter-notice” tools, useful for those who believe that their material was falsely deleted.
Secondly, Google will prevent terms closely connected with piracy from appearing in Autocomplete field. Although it’s quite hard to know when search terms are used to search for infringing material, the service promised to do its best to prevent Autocomplete option from showing the terms usually used for that purpose. For example, “thep” won’t be completed to “thepiratebay” anymore, and the names of tracks and movies won’t have “torrent” after them.
Then, Google will also take some efforts to improve its AdSense anti-piracy review. Although the service has always prohibited the use of its AdSense tool on pages providing infringing content, now it will work harder to cooperate with copyright owners to identify, and, if appropriate, expel infringers from the AdSense program.
Finally, the service is going to experiment to make authorized preview material more readily accessible in search results.
Meanwhile, Google assures everyone that it won’t alter search results, and copyright violating sites won’t be deleted.

|Google before you go crazy, just remember your just a search engine and people can change there engines in a snap and all of a sudden your not number one any more. Think before you start filtering results|

|Who cares if you can't find the material you're looking for via Google's search engine? I think I've MAYBE used it 2 or 3 times to search for anything "illegal" to download, and if memory serves I wasn't able to find it then because of how the results appear by design. Most of us searching for a movie, a song, a CD, etc. are not looking for it by way of Google's search engine; we're using the search features given to use on our favorite download sites (i.e. ExtraTorrent, H33T, Demonoid, AhaShare, 1337x, etc). Personally, I couldn't care less what Google or any other search engine toting company does to modify the results of a search in regard to copyright infringements.|
|wwwwaaaaa GOOGLE no - NOT.|
I don't use this spying data logging "search" engine anyway. I use IX or called starting pages.com
What has me LMFAO is EVERYONE Talks about search engines; torrent search engine when we all know this "filtering" junk WILL NOT WORK.
An example are the news groups and allot more that don't use these "search engines"...
You all also have to remember your browsers "history" file is gone through by allot of web sites using what is called History Sniffing. NOW THAT IS A VERY BIG CONCERN...
As mentioned before all you have to do is learn to write a simple search scrip and YOU DO NOT NEED A SEARCH ENGINE - just enter the search script into the URL and go...

|the reason it matters to us is... (people like me in the U.S.)|
torrent sites say that their search engines for finding torrents are no different than other search engines like google,yahoo or any other. so if a giant like google can find a torrent file just as easy as our beloved ET search engine, then our site is the same thing as google?? it is, now if google changes that...
|Sirden1959...welcome to the world of liberalism!|
|About Google and other "general" search sites....When the search results are displayed how many sites are really relevant to what you were looking for? 1, 2 or 3?, out of how many displayed???||
