"A group of 13 trade organizations representing all
corners of the music industry is calling on Google to incorporate
mechanisms for cracking down on piracy as it attempts to broker a
deal on net neutrality.
""The music community we represent believes it is vital that any
Internet policy initiative permit and encourage ISPs and other
intermediaries to take measures to deter unlawful activity such as
copyright infringement and child pornography," the groups wrote in
a letter to Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) CEO Eric Schmidt.
"The letter (available here in PDF format) praised Google and
Verizon (NYSE: VZ) for staking out a compromise framework for
network management, giving particular emphasis to the distinction
between the treatment of lawful and unlawful content."
