EU CRACKS DOWN ON IL­LE­GAL CON­TENT

Computer Active (UK) - - News -

It may soon be­come much harder to find il­le­gal TV and film con­tent on­line af­ter the EU called for com­pa­nies like Google and Twit­ter to do more to re­move it. Pro­pos­als to be pub­lished soon in­clude forc­ing search en­gines to use sys­tems that au­to­mat­i­cally de­tect pro­hib­ited con­tent. The EU also wants sites to pay ex­pert or­gan­i­sa­tions to find il­le­gal con­tent. The tough mea­sures would mean view­ers be­ing able to find il­le­gal films and TV shows only by typ­ing a site’s URL, not by search­ing for them.
