    Dailymotion is where you go for videos that were pulled from YouTube due to copyright. Can see why Google wouldn’t want to feature copywritten content.

    I will never for the life of me figure out why people think that Google has some obligation to be “fair” in what they show on their own website. People are not forced to use Google. How is telling Google what they should show on their website and where any different than me telling Search Engine Land that they HAVE TO link to my website and show it just as prominently as links to other websites – all at no charge, of course? Be careful what you wish for. Someday, things that the court system forces Google to do out of some sense of “fairness” may just as easily become law for your own website.

    Dailymotion has got every right to say that, but they need to figure out why other video platforms are being neglected. Definitely nothing happens without any reason, but it’s quite true that now a days we don’t often get to see other video site results over youtube. To some extent I do agree with Devlin on the copywritten content issue, but does that levy with all content that the site has? Or Google is surely playing some fishy games here to outrank their Youtube competitors?

    That may be the case but their definition of fair may be completely different than yours. The fact that they list a competitor’s website at all may be seen by some as being VERY fair.

    Regardless, they will still make their money whether they lie or not. Are you going to stop paying for ads because they are liars? Not if you want to keep making money!

    It’s not against the law to sculpt your own version of the truth. If it was, every lawyer and politician would be in jail. I hope you really don’t buy into everything Matt Cutts says, hook, line and sinker!

    So your point is that they lie. Mine is, so what? If you plastered the world with signs that Google is lying and provided proof, it still wouldn’t affect their business one iota. This is great fodder for those who want to attack Google and turn them into a villain but where does it get you? They can do what they want, they can lie all they want and they still make the same amount of money. “It’s just not fair” stopped working when I was about six years old.

    Actually, they end up settling before they ever test the real waters in all of these legal cases. The fact still is, what you are claiming that Google is compelled to do out of fairness or some sort of twisted legal obligation should then hold true for every single website that exists. If you think they should have to list their competitors’ services on their website then I hope you are listing links to your competitors and all of their services on your own website, as well.

    Exactly what I thought. Just another liberal who thinks that large businesses should have to operate under a different set of rules than the rest of the world because it isn’t fair that they are so successful. That’s what I was trying to draw out of you. Nothing more needs to be added to this thread.

    Well, when Google gets to a 90% market share, you can use Judge Learned Hand’s opinion that they now are a monopoly. Until then, you cannot point to a single they do that is in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act.
