UK moves to make pirated sites harder to find, less likely to be used

Law enforcement and the entertainment industry in the UK hope that it is soon going to become harder to find and watch pirated films, music and sports there. Google, Bing and the UK entertainment industry agreed to a new voluntary code to strengthen anti-piracy laws. The plan is for the  tech and social media companies to redirect users to legitimate sites rather than pirated sites with security risks by changing how searches find sites. This will move the pirate sites farther down in the search results, making them more difficult to find and less likely to be used than legitimate sites. Time will tell how well this strategy will work.  Read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-39023950
