Google hatching deal with credit card companies

Written by Nick Farrell



Will take out pirate sites

Search engine Google is inking a deal with credit card companies to kill off pirate sites.

The plan is to stop websites more or less dedicated to offering links to pirated films, music and books from making money out of the illegal material. This will involve blocking funding to websites that do not respond to legal challenges.

The idea of shutting off finance to more websites is already popular with many in the book publishing, music, film and television industries, who want to see tougher measures to control piracy. What is unusual is that Google is backing it,
