Google suffered setback in its case against SNEP the music industry group. French Supreme Court ruled that Google may be asked for censoring search terms like ‘Torrent’, ‘RapidShare’ and ‘Megaupload’ from its Instant and Auto-complete services. Court argued that Google indirectly facilitates copyright infringement by not filtering these terms.
This new attempt from another court wouldn’t get rid of pirate sites. Pirate sites would just change their addresses in order to continue sharing activities.
