Entertainment Industry Sounding The Alarm Again On Piracy

It looks like the entertainment industry is back to blaming Google for all their problems. We are against piracy as much as the next guy but the RIAA and MPAA are just so far out of touch it isn't even funny.

"We invite Google and the other major search engines to sit down with us to formulate a plan that goes beyond promises of action and actually serves its intended purpose of deterring piracy and giving the legitimate marketplace an environment to thrive," RIAA Chairman Cary Sherman told a House panel on Wednesday.

Earlier that day, MPAA Chairman Christopher Dodd, a former U.S. senator, joined several House lawmakers in telling reporters that "as the Internet's gatekeepers, search engines share a responsibility to play a constructive role in not directing audiences to illegitimate content."
