dingDaShan (818817) writes "Slashdot has posted several stories about the potential evildoings of Google, but this statement, from the Official Google Blog, gives a different side of the issue. Google does respect copyright, as opposed to the Chinese search engine Baidu, which blatantly ignores copyright restrictions.[Baidu mp3 section] The mp3 section of the Baidu page allows one to easily download copyrighted material. Furthermore, one can not help but notice the similarities between the interface designs of Baidu and Google. Many Slashdotters are opposed to DRM, but what is the alternative?"
