    Found this over on GoNintendo, and it stopped me in my tracks:

    "Google, which owns popular video-sharing website YouTube, is improving the process by which owners of digital content alert it to the unauthorized posting of copyrighted material."

    I don't know if it's piracy? it's just using copyrighted material in their videos. Most cases are just using the music in the background.

    1. Not in the correct format.
    2. Does anyone need the previously stated clarification on what Google is?
    3. Good. I'm hoping it doesn't come to this, but if it does, the internet needs to prove that it can govern itself without federal influence, as video games have done with the ESRB.

    Youtube has always taken steps to remove that type of content.

    You guys should read the article before commenting. I can understand this from Carbon, but you too, rydi?

    This isn't necessarily about Youtube - GoNintendo just clarified it that way for whatever reason. The search engine itself is going to start filtering results better and respond to complaints more quickly.

    The first post makes it seem like they didn't try before (especially the use of the word "joining" which implies they're entering some group they were not part of before), that's what I'm, clearing up.

    Exactly. This is fairly significant, since everyone and their mother uses Google on a regular basis. It's also noteworthy that this is private policing of a mainstream infrastructure.

    it's no surprise google is high on surveillance and intrusive, the quicker people boycott google the better, there are other search engines out there! won't be the end of the world.

    Google can bite me. It's not as if they are going to stop the problem, so why try?

    Seriously? The USA is slowly becoming the new China... and they're trying to bring the whole world with them.

    I think they need to first learn what the law allows though. I was in a team that made a 30 second ad for a video production class. We used about 20 seconds of the Sanford and Son theme song. This was for educational use, not for any form of profit, should qualify for fair use, and only posted to our teacher's YouTube site for the class (being the way we would always submit our final videos for grading). They denied the video claiming copyright infringement. We filed a review request for fair use, explained everything, even submitted a signed letter from out teacher. They still denied it.

    A search engine is trying to stop piracy links from showing up in it's search results, and you all are claiming it's china now?

    Seriously guys? It's their own fucking site and engine, and they want to not have illegal content showing up on it.

    You know, like how gbatemp removes links to ROMs. Does that mean gbatemp is becoming china?

    Google is not america, google is a company and a website. They have the right to modify THEIR OWN SHIT.

    This is awful...

    While not a bad move for Google, this is a huge blow to pirates. Finding new websites is going to be nearly impossible now.




    I don't use Bing, but I wonder if it will still show illegal sites.
