Google Blocks 'Piracy Related' Terms From Autocomplete, Instant Search
This doesn't mean Google is censoring the full search results; it just won't automatically suggest them to curious users. Nevertheless, BitTorrent and others think the largely symbolic move may work in a way counterintuitive to Google's intentions. "A quick search for 'BitTorrent' currently returns a variety of legitimate and useful links, including company information, our software, our open-source protocol, and more," BitTorrent's Simon Morris told TorrentFreak. "What Google may not realize is that our technology is used for many purposes that provide significant value to the technology industry, companies, artists and consumers at large."
