Title: Google refuses to remove The Pirate Bay’s homepage from its search results

Abstract: The Pirate Bay, the web’s highest-profile source of TV shows, movies, and music, has continued to hold its fort despite many attempts by the copyright holders to remove the site. In order to discourage pirate sites, even Google, the popular search giant, has been asked time and again to remove links from its search results that lead to the pirate sites. While Google has processed a huge number of takedown requests received for removal of pirate sites, this time around the search giant has categorically refused to remove TPB’s homepage from its search results, as it is not infringing. According to Google, TPB’s homepage simply contains the iconic pirate ship logo, a search box, as well as some other links. The Pirate Bay does not promote piracy directly or mentions that copyright infringing content is available on the website, which warrants a ‘takedown’.
