+ - Britain's BPI goes after Google -- with US DMCA !-> 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The BPI, the RIAA's UK counterpart, has gone up against the Holiest of Holies, American online advertising conglomerate Google, says Chilling Effects. The BPI contributed to the British government's Digital Ecomy bill, complete with its ACTA Three Strikes and you're Off The Net element, with hardly a murmur from the UK lamescream media. Now Chilling Effects quotes a missive directed at Gargle by the BPI. It states, in part, "We have identified the following links that are available via Google's search engine, and request the following links be removed as soon as possible as they directly link to sound recordings owned by our members ... " And what's even more interesting is: this British 'trade' outfity is using the American DMCA to attack Google. Can it do that?"

  • Yes, they can. Why, sure they can. Powerful groups, associations, conglomerates, etc. can do pretty much everything they want. Doubly so if it involves lawyers.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
