Unclear on the Concept

Companies that produce movies, music and television programs try very hard to stay ahead of the people who put their work online for free. One way to do that is to get search engines to not list the sites that make the downloads available.

But Warner Bros. may have cast their net a little too widely in asking Google to de-list a number of sites where Warner Bros. material can be viewed or downloaded. They included sites that offer legitimate streaming, such as Amazon. And they included their own site.

Yes. A media company has asked Google to stop listing its own site because doing so violates copyright laws.

And they called the duck "Daffy."

A snake swallowing its own tail. Or the mythical foo-foo bird that flies in increasingly smaller circles until it succeeds in disappearing up its own anus.
