AG Asking Google to Address Alleged Violations of Intellectual Property Rights

June 6, 2013

Attorney General Jim Hood is asking internet giant Google to substantially address issues on its internet site that are allowing consumers to obtain illegal and counterfeit goods, including the online sale of dangerous drugs without a prescription.

“On every check we have made, Google’s search engine gave us easy access to illegal goods, including web sites which offer dangerous drugs without a prescription, counterfeit goods of every description, and infringing copies of movies, music, software and games,” said Attorney General Hood.  “This behavior means that Google is putting consumers at risk and facilitating wrongdoing, all while profiting handsomely from illegal behavior.”
