Google introduces tool to tackle piracy in US

News: 20th October 2010 by Louise Dodgson under Record Labels, Selling & Distributing Your Music

Google has taken actions to assist the recording industry in their battle against piracy, and this should be come available in the US, but for a fee. Apparently, the tool they have created, called Site Search, will allow labels and other content owners to track the illegal sources. And with the US having the Digital Millenium Copyright Act in place, any dodgy sources they seek out can be shut down.

It'll be intriguing to see how this pans out across the water. There is no doubt that the world's largest search engine can play a huge part in working to prevent filesharing.
