The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry who represent record labels around the world have expressed their disappointment at unfilled promises made by Google a year ago regarding actions the internet giant planned to take towards the prevention of filesharing and piracy.

Amongst the suggestions put forward by the IFPI was that Google should invest in directing internet users to legal download sites but it seems actions that Google have agreed to take in the past year have not been implemented. Obviously, by getting Google to take action in this way the IFPI are hoping that this would set a precedent with other search engines to work in a similar way to protect copyrighted music.
