Proposals by search engines for action on copyright infringement, February 2012

DCMS have been continuing their meetings with rights holders and intermediaries about voluntary co-regulation agreements to tackle copyright infringement online. We've blogged many times about these before. There have been discussions about new website blocking measures, around action that could be taken by ad networks, and about additional powers over search engines

This release contains the proposals written by search engines for how they can improve their work to tackle infringement. The proposals are a response to initial proposals made by rights holders, which we wrote about earlier

Minutes from the meeting in which these newer proposals were discussed are also available. Our analysis of this batch of FoI releases is up on our blog.
