Torrentspy tells MPAA to sue Google


"The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) might just as well have sued Google Inc. for copyright violation rather than pick on Torrentspy, the smaller company said in a court filing this week seeking dismissal of the case.

“There is nothing alleged to distinguish defendants’ website from that maintained by Google,” Torrentspy said in its filing. “Everything alleged about defendants’ website is true about Google, and even more so, because Google outperforms the allegations in the complaint,” the filing reads.

Interesting and quite true. I got pointed to an application the other day which does some Google magic to make it really easy to find MP3s on Google (I believe it did something like check for directory listing results and some stuff to lower the amount of noise).

Google also functions as a torrent finder but performs quite poorly.
