Undeterred by the backlash to SOPA and PIPA (or perhaps looking for payback), the RIAA and IFPI are considering filing suit against Google (GOOG) over its displaying of links to piracy-enabling websites in its search results. The trade associations, who recently accused Google of indirectly profiting from piracy, want the search giant to lessen the prominence of links to "infringing" sites in its results.

    Isn't that the point of the internet? The freedom to search for what you want. Next thing they will not let you search for guns, grenades, and explosives, or anything that is detrimental to society.

    GFL, Good Fricken' Luck !! Google has taken on firms bigger than RIAA and won. Search is Search, whether you're looking for 'Toy Story' or various politicians like Ricky Santorum.
