Google goes back on autocomplete censorship

Ever since Google took over the Internet by its sheer presence, many people have turned to the search giant to find out answers to questions that they do not know. Apart from that, still others do use it to look for illegal files and downloads, but Google has decided to make it all the more challenging by removing piracy-related terms from its autocomplete feature. Basically, if you now want to look for selected sites that are closely linked to file sharing, you will need to hit the nail on its head with each search term over on Google. Guess BitTorrent, RapidShare, uTorrent, and others of similar nature will no longer fall under the autocomplete spell, showing up only when you type the complete phrase into the search engine and press Enter. No surprise here, since Google does intend to do their part in lowering the amount of piracy that is going on.
