U2 Manager’s Gentle Google-Bashing
U2 manager Paul McGuinness reportedly engaged in what might be called some gentle Google-Bashing during a Midem panel dealing with copyright.
“I don’t want to engage in Google-bashing, but there is a sense of unease across Europe, across the world, about Google,” he began.
At last year’s Midem, McGuinness spent most of an hour-long speech lambasting the online search giant.
“The experience of people when they go on Google and look for U2 music or P.J. Harvey music is a shopping list of illegal opportunities to get their music. They have done nothing meaningful to discourage that,” was among several negative comments aimed at the company.
