Put­nam verus the pi­rates

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Veteran pro­ducer David Put­tnam has de­manded that in­ter­net search en­gines re­move list­ings of sites that en­able users to view pi­rated movies. Ad­dress­ing the UK Film Dis­trib­u­tors’ As­so­ci­a­tion, Lord Put­tnam (as he now is) stated: “A vi­tal step for the tech­nol­ogy sec­tor is to sign­post le­git­i­mate search op­tions far more clearly and to delete links to sites that pro­mote il­le­gally sourced con­tent.”

Any such move would gen­er­ate much con­tro­versy among cam­paign­ers for open­ness on the in­ter­net. Tricky busi­ness.
