News Corporation’s James Murdoch has given a speech where he lays into detractors of anti-piracy legislation, as well as search engines and consumer electronics firms. “What is really alarming is that it is controversial at all to shut down vast pirate sites or disconnect repeat offenders who have no regard for creators’ rights,” he said, on the first of those. Murdoch also criticised search engines (i.e. Google) for building businesses around indexing content without paying its creators, and said gadget makers “have a clear incentive to drive the cost of content toward zero–in order to drive customers to buy their products, without additional competition from rights holders for their customers’ money”.
