carre4 writes “Blue Destiny Records has sued both Google and Microsoft for allegedly ‘facilitating and enabling’ distribution of copyrighted songs illegally. The suit alleges that RapidShare runs ‘a distribution center for unlawful copies of copyrighted works.’ RapidShare is helped by Google and Microsoft, which benefit from the ad relationships, according to the suit. Blue Destiny has attempted to link to pages with RapidShare links to their music via DMCA takedown notices, and Google has, apparently, not complied, while Microsoft’s Bing site has removed the links. RapidShare, for its part, is based outside of the US and does not accept DMCA notices.”
