The Pirate Google: Google is as guilty of linking to torrents as The Pirate Bay

The Pirate GoogleWhen The Pirate Bay was ordered shut down by the Swedish courts because it linked to infringing torrents on the Internet, many people pointed out that Google links to whole mountains’ — whole planets’ — worth of infringing stuff. Now, to make the point, comes The Pirate Google, a Google mashup that finds torrent files: “The intention of this site is to demonstrate the double standard that was exemplified in the recent Pirate Bay Trial. Sites such as Google offer much the same functionality as The Pirate Bay and other Bit Torrent sites but are not targeted by media conglomerates such as the IFPI as they have the political and legal clout to defend themselves unlike these small independent sites.”
