The RIAA Wants Google To Ignore Bad SEO And Push "Legit" Music Sites Up Above Pirate Sites

1 comment

Recently the RIAA complained that Google isn't doing enough to penalize sites that illegally pirate media online. And also claims that Google isn't working hard enough to push legit sites like iTunes to the top. But fear not TechDirt takes them to task with the following:

"For everyone else in the world, if they're not satisfied with how the sites they favor rank in Google, they learn a little something about search engine optimization. But, noooooooo, not the RIAA. They think that it is a requirement that Google be tailored to them directly."

Is anyone else getting tired of old school media not even trying to understand the internet, and then complaining when things don't go their way?
