    I wasn't aware it WAS Google's job to censor searches (Or ANY search engine for that matter) :rolleyes: Next parents will be suing because kids are finding porn, and religious people will be suing because Google showed them something offensive.

    When your very existence is slipping away, you tend to fight for it with everything you have.
    The music industry is rapidly becoming the litigation industry.

    They missed the boat years ago.

    Maybe IFPI will have better results than Rick Santorum did with Google :)

    I think Steve Jobs did more to reduce music piracy than anything the RIAA has done. People who do pirate don't need Google to find it. It will really only hinder some casual pirates.

    If they RIAA would spend all that money lowering prices on new releases, instead of sueing 15 yr olds, maybe more people would buy the hard copy.

    In all reality, these days, I feel kind of outdated even buying CD's, as all I do is rip them to my music server for playback. Sure beats that old 300 disc CD changer. RIAA just needs to get with reality.

    +1 - as soon as get home with a new CD - first thing I do is rip it to MP3 on my harddrive. Then the CD should go into the CD storage book...

    Aren't India, Pakistan, China and a few other countries trying the same tactics?

    +1 on that one, serious pirates know there are better ways than Google to find what they are looking for.

    I often Google a song title I've heard to get more information and perhaps I'm ignoring it because I always use the same sources to buy music but in my recollection the number one result is usually a YouTube video of some sort.

    I also agree that it's not Google's job to censor search results!
