Since 2013, CEPIC has been fighting to improve the functionalities of the Google Image Search in order to reduce image piracy online and direct Internet users to the source of the image. Finally, in 2017, several meetings took place in Berlin and Paris bringing together representatives of Google and representatives of visual authors and businesses. CEPIC took part in all of these meetings.
In February 2018, Google introduced a number of changes in its image search, such as the removal of the “View Image” Button.
