Google's Pledge To Downgrade Piracy Sites Under Review

Obviously I don't search for pirated content enough because I didn't even realize Google was "dragging its feet" on its promise to push piracy sites down in its search rankings. I could have sworn the search giant said it was doing something about this months ago. confused

The government is to review Google's pledge to downgrade illegal filesharing websites in its search results, after entertainment groups accused the internet giant of dragging its feet over the issue. Entertainment groups, comprising the film, music and publishing industries, complained that top Google search results remain dominated by pirate sites despite repeated assurances from the internet firm that it would push them down.
