The Slightly Right of Centre blog has caused a stir with a blog post claiming search engines are coming under pressure to remove sites linked to piracy from their results in the UK, and also to promote a white-list of approved music and film sites. “Representatives from three major search engines pushed-back on similar proposals at a meeting last year, but on Tuesday faced questions from chair Ed Vaizey, who I’m told was ‘clearly surprised if not a little upset’ that the three didn’t return with a viable counter-proposal,” claims blogger James Firth. He suggests that the search engines remain unwilling to doctor their search results in the favour of the music and film industries. The blog is sponsored by the Open Digital Policy Organisation, it’s worth noting.
