It's getting too easy to bash Google now. They have decided to punish pirate sites in their search results, apparently.
Now, if you are very naive you might this this is fine. But I would like to point out that copyright infringement is a civil offense, at worst, by which I mean that
PIRACY IS NOT ILLEGAL
So Google taking it upon itself to effectively censor material that is not illegal is a bold new step in a worthless direction--just as bad as their Google Mobility debacle.
What's next, conservative leaning websites? People who criticize Google?
Duck Duck Go is turning into a very good search engine, you should check it out. They don't insist on tracking you all the time, either.
But if you have something to say on the internet, be sure you have a license, first.
