WASHINGTON (AP) — The music and movie industries are sounding the alarm again on online piracy, contending that illegal downloads are on the rise and that search engines like Google aren't doing enough to stop them.
Media executives say they have no intention of trying to revive legislation that failed last year that would have imposed unprecedented regulations on Internet companies.
But the industry's top lobbyists returned to Capitol Hill this week to try to renew interest in the piracy issue. They are distributing their own research on what they say are the growing perils of piracy — some of which is contested by Internet activists — and telling Congress that Google and other search engines aren't doing enough to redirect consumers away from known pirating sites.
Google declined to comment.
