Hacker calls Google a pirate

Written by Nick Farell



Murdoch has a problem with search engine


In a brilliant case of pot calling kettle black, Rupert Murdoch, whose newspapers have been involved in a hacking scandal in blighty, has lobbed a stone at the search engine Google.

Given that throwing stones is not something sensible to do, when you live in a glass house, Murdoch must be feeling particularly brave. The News Corp chairman and chief executive used his Twitter account to blast the search engine, branding it a "piracy leader".

He insisted that Google streams movies free and sells advts around them," Murdoch wrote.  He said that making a film was “risky as hell", with piracy hurting actors and writers. Murdoch said that he had just done a Google search for the latest “Mission impossible” flick and found several sites offering free links.

Still there is no harm hacking the phone of a murdered child and selling adverts around that is there? According to AP Murdoch's Twitter account is providing minutes of fun for the press. There have been some outraged that his spelling and typing is not up to scratch.  As the great man himself says “that does not matter”. After all lacking spelling and typing skills does not seem to have been a barrier to becoming a media mongol.

Title, me gusta.

I only hope Murdoch's heir has more common sense, and a little heart, unlike this grinch.

Murdoch must take a very good look in the mirror before calling Google a pirate. These profit-driven money-hungry execs and corporate types will never understand Google's vision: a free and open world for all. It'll have to come eventually.

Open Source Movement FTW.
