Mike Weatherley, Intellectual Property Adviser to the Prime Minister and Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has published a report entitled Search Engines and Piracy, which outlines the shortcomings of search engine providers in the fight against online piracy.

The report recognises that although search engines cannot be attributed as a cause of online piracy, they can certainly do more to tackle the high level of piracy in the UK. Piracy is estimated to cost the creative industries £400m per year in music and film alone. The report asserts that Google, as the main provider of search facilities in the UK, should take a leading role amongst search engines to tackle online piracy.
