Will this work? Hide the data? Or just end google search dominance. Already Apple has kicked out google maps, what’s next google search?
Could be. Guess who is behind this? Yep our good friends at the Entertainment companies, hoping to hold onto their distribution monopolies. Won’t work. Music is already dead. Who buys a music CD any more. DVD movies? Just get Netflix.
Fighting a losing battle is no way to win the war, cord cutters are everywhere.
We cancelled our $100 a month cable bill, and went all Internet on it. Only cable is broadcast, free. Roku box for me. When that doesn’t work, there is still the laptop to TV way. or Apple TV, for the Apple fan boys. I may join that club in the near future.
But the Entertainment companies keep trying, fighting a losing war.
So now it looks like they have buttonholed google into doing their bidding. Don’t you know how to command there system to give you what you want? Do you not know how “newsmapping” works? Build your own search … Choose your own topics to follow.
Google Inc. said it will introduce changes to its search engine that will discourage piracy by placing legitimate copyrighted content higher in online queries.
The company next week will begin using algorithms that push potentially pirated material to a lower position in search results, Mountain View, California-based Google said today in a blog posting on its website.
Entertainment companies have been pressing Google for years to take steps to make pirated content harder to find. The new system will use “removal notices,” or complaints from entertainment companies, that a website has received in ranking search results, Amit Singhal, senior vice president for engineering, said on the blog. Hollywood applauded the move.
“We are optimistic that Google’s actions will help steer consumers to the myriad legitimate ways for them to access movies and TV shows online,” Michael O’Leary, a senior executive vice president at the Motion Picture Association of America, said in an e-mailed statement.
That means pay for it … Not Spotify it …
Lower rankings don’t represent a conclusion that a copyright has actually been violated, Singhal wrote. The company received 4.3 million copyright removal notices in the last 30 days, he said.
Obviously, they think people don’t no how to program the search engine to give them what they want. I suggest they are wrong. Don’t get me wrong, I am no pirate, I just don’t cotton to the way “news search” works. I don’t my own. I use RSS for most of my Internet reading material, and program google to deliver things I want to read, about topics I care about. Ever wonder why Yahoo is not successful?
By rolling my own — That way I get what I want, not what the lamestream tries to get for me to read.
