Google and Bing collaborate to combat illegal music download search
Bing and Google are coming together to make it difficult for people to find illegal streaming and download sites on their search engines.
The two search engines have signed up to a code of practice which makes collaboration with rightsholders easier. This code is voluntary and will not be shared publicly.
The code will “accelerate the demotion of illegal sites following notices from rights holders and establishes ongoing technical consultation, increased co-operation and information sharing to develop and improve the process. It will also enable new practices to be adopted where needed.”
Business Insider is, however, reporting that neither of the two has agreed to take any specific action yet.
They will first work out how to demote search pirate sites in search results and report their findings to rights holders later in the year.
