Movie Companies Want to Hold Search Engines Liable For Piracy

How many times has the entertainment industry in this country tried something like this? How many times have they failed? If you said "every time," you'd be right. Maybe Russia should take a lesson from Hollywood.

Producers of movies and TV shows in Russia say they want companies including Google, Yandex and Microsoft to wipe piracy from their search engines. The rightsholders want the companies to remove links to pirate sites from their search listings on demand, or face being held liable for third party infringement.
