These piss-ant cowards and lazy-ass jackasses are only going after those that they have to do the least amount of work to get to - the search engines, ones like Yahoo! and torrent search engines. They’re too stupid and lazy to find the real people who are responsible, so they want everyone else to do the work. Linking or providing search results to potentially illicit material is not a crime - torrents are used for a variety of different things, including legitimate free musics distribution, file distribution for game downloads (an alternative to using just the company bandwidth), etc. Again, they want to bust someone and since they can’t get to the trouble, they just go for the next “best” thing, in their minds - those that “allow” the search results to come forward. Freakin’ retards! lol
All I can say to this, is as a friend once said, “US Politicians are amatures compared to Italian Politicians” and that goes for the level of corruption as well. Burlisconi is a prime example, can be bribed with 1,000 to 1,500 euro a night super model hookers. He knows nothing about any payments, his “friends” just provide him with “dates” for his “bunga-bunga” parties. Of course there are 900 legislatures, compared to Congress, some ellected for life. With the kind of money the MPAA and RIAA can throw around, they can buy any politician out there. I do wonder about the Judges, but can;t say with any certainty.
The European’s should fight any Search Censorship!!!
Perhaps someone should complain to yahoo that all the Italian Government websites are illegally hosting copyrighted material or contains links to unlawful content. Apperantly no proof is required. It would be very poetic justice…
“This approach might oblige search engines to remove the access to contents following a mere notice from the alleged right holder; and
It extends the removal obligation not only to the links to the websites providing the unlawful contents, but also to other websites performing lawful activities, but containing links to such unlawful websites.”
