We have all heard about Google’s new algorithm for demoting sites with too many takedown notices and complaints. This new method is supposed to help reduce copyright infringement by making the search for infringing material harder. When the announcement first hit we were more than a little surprised that Google had taken this step. Prior to this they had refused multiple requests from the MPAA, RIAA and other copyright holder to alter their search feature to suit their demands. Now things may have changed for the advertising/search giant.

We have said this before and we will say it again; we Love Judge Richard Posner. It is not just his no-nonsense behavior in the courtroom or his disgust with the way companies are abusing the patent system; it is for the fact that he actually uses common sense and good judgment. We have seen far too many judges that either do not have, or do not use, sound judgment in their findings. Far too often they seem to feel that they need to side with the big corporations. This time Poser’s ruling may have massive and far-reaching effects as it becomes precedent.
