Custom BitTorrent Search Engine Demonstrates Google’s Proximity to The Pirate Bay

April 24th, 2009

Forbes calls Google the New Pirate Bay because it’s great at finding torrents—acting as a sort of meta-aggregator. With this custom Google search engine, it’s even easier to find and download torrents via Google.

As the Forbes article linked above points out, doing a simple search for wolverine torrent turns up several popular BitTorrent trackers, meaning you’re just two clicks away from downloading the leaked movie via BitTorrent. The custom search engine in question just streamlines the process slightly by explicitly defining which popular torrent trackers Google should search.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Google used for quick and easy file sharing. Previously mentioned G2P uses some custom Google-fu to find publicly hosted media files in a quick and easy search.
