U2 manager: ‘Google is the greatest theft enabler on the internet’ | Music Week

Discussing piracy, McGuinness suggested Google isn’t dealing with illegal links because “they don’t want to”.

“There are some vested interests that could help a lot more than they are doing,” he explained. “Google is the greatest theft enabler on the internet, when I Google YouTube music there are multiple opportunities to steal it.

“I don’t think the industry takes [Google’s] promises to take things down when they get a notice sincerely. They take it down but the bots replace them immediately. I don’t thinks it’s beyond the ingenuity of those clever people at Google to deal with that, but I don’t think they don’t want to.”

  1. “We love YouTube downloaders because they make it so easy to grab and save video from YouTube’s inexhaustible, ever-expanding supply. Whatever you like, if it’s on video, it’s probably on YouTube in one form or another. HOW’s Free YouTube Downloader is one of the easiest tools for that job we’ve found. It not only downloads videos from YouTube but also converts them and files from your hard drive into formats you can play on your iPad, iPhone, and similar devices. It offers several quality levels, including HD quality, and plays your converted file when the job is done. . . ”

    CNET Review at top of Google search for “Free YouTube download software”.

    As Bob Dylan would say, “They’re selling tickets to the hanging.”
