Google services have seen alternative to sharing pirated movies

Read this recent news: You would never expect to find a download link to The Mummy, Tom Cruise’s latest movie, while doing a search on Google Maps.

Google services have seen alternative to sharing pirated movies

This growth of unusual sources for this kind of thing appears in Google’s latest report related to the DMCA, the American act that protects copyright. There are thousands of requests for content to be withdrawn from the search from the standard, and a small but already expressive part of them happened within the company’s own ecosystem.

One of these unusual methods, for example, involves an intricate labyrinth of links, with a public document in Drive driving users to videos not listed on YouTube, with full movies. The uploads are hidden from traditional platform searches and the idea is to allow users to download the videos directly – of course, they can always watch online, but the idea is that the files will be removed quickly from the air, start gaining views, making the video site a temporary place to upload files. Links to such documents are shared in newsgroups and sharing sites, even falling into search algorithms and also targeting the DMCA, but to a lesser extent than a traditional torrent link. The available storage space, the absence of hiring of own servers and the fact that virtually everyone has a Google account and know how to use such services increases its proliferation, even though the links have a very short shelf life.
