    This is the kind of stuff that drives me nuts.  You know – when Google discovers that JC Penneys buys backlinks, they see fit to lock them out of the search results in about ten minutes. I know someone who spent one ill-advised evening clicking on the Google AdSense ads on his website racking up maybe $10 in self-created commissions – and Google the next day locked his Google account and banned his website from AdSense. (I swear it wasn’t me!)

    But – hey – if this involves others, we’ve all got to jump through DCMA hoops and spend tons of time and money to beg them to take down a url just so pirates can immediately repost it and fifty others like it on the same website.  

    Does Google understand that nowadays we content producers are like Mickey Mouse trying to stop the water in the Sorcerer’s Apprentice?  Why the Hell don’t search engines simply stop showing these same pirate sites in their search engine results?   Filestube, torrentz.eu, etc are nothing but criminal enterprises, do search engines have to keep pumping customers to their websites?

    Steve – I can’t speak about the two specific sites you mentioned in the last paragraph there, but I can say that torrent sites and file-sharing sites have very many legitimate, legal uses (and users). To say all should be shut down or banned from Google because some are used illegally would be like saying all blogs should be closed down because some use them for illegal purposes.

    In the fashion sector, Bing is full of counterfeit sites.

    And what uses would these be which ALSO necessitate these things to appear prominently in search engine results?

    Countless businesses and organizations use file-sharing sites for a variety of (legal) reasons. The BBC has used torrents to distribute content, for example. SXSW has used torrents to help spread content. The Linux OS community has used torrents legally to distribute material. Just a couple weeks ago, the band Counting Crows (and its record label) released its latest album via BitTorrent. I’m sure you could find others, too, if you’re interested.
