Pirate Megupload is Still Being Censored- By Google

Megaupload (Still) Censored by Google’s Piracy Filter

Posted: 30 Oct 2012

Since January 2011, Google has been filtering “piracy-related” terms from its ‘Autocomplete‘ and ‘Instant‘ services.

Google users searching for terms like “torrent”, “BitTorrent” and “Megaupload” will notice that no suggestions and search results appear before they type the full word. While no search results are removed from Google’s index, there is sharp decrease in searches for these terms.

What triggers a keyword to be included in the blacklist is not clear, but a Google spokesperson previously told TorrentFreak that they remove terms that are “closely associated with infringing results.”

“It’s not easy and the list will undoubtedly change over time. When evaluating terms for inclusion, we examine several factors, including correlation between the term and results that have been subject to valid DMCA takedown notices,” Google told us.

Sounds deliberate, and as we’ve documented in the past the list has indeed been changed. Many new terms have been added since the start, most recently to include several of The Pirate Bay’s domain names.

However, these changes appear to go only one way.

Megaupload, for example, is still among the censored terms even though the site has been offline for more than nine months. There are simply no accurate “copyright infringement” grounds to keep it blacklisted, one would think.

Nevertheless, searching for “Megauploa” today still shows no Autocomplete and Instant results at all.

Funnily enough, Google’s search algorithm bypasses the filter to some extent, suggesting “Megauplaupload” when typing “Megaupl” and displaying instant results for a “Megaupload” search because that’s a far more popular search term.

That said, the concern remains that once a term is placed on Google piracy blacklist it’s not so easy to get it taken off.
Google algorithms bypass piracy filter?

At this point it’s still unclear what factors dictate a term being placed on Google’s piracy blacklist. It’s also unknown how many piracy related terms are censored as the list is not made public.

To get a better understanding of Megaupload’s continued presence in the blacklist and what the update policy is, TF asked Google for a comment, but we have yet to receive a reply.

Supa dupa efficient eh?
