Attorney General Jim Hood says he’s trying to organize state attorneys general to push Google to better protect intellectual property such as music, movies and software.
Hood said Monday during a luncheon sponsored by the Capitol press corps and Mississippi State University’s Stennis Institute of Government that he’s circulating a letter to other states’ top lawyers, seeking a meeting with Google. He said he hopes to get signatures from more than 20 attorneys general.
“Maybe Google will come to the table,” he said. “That’s one I hope we can settle.”
Google, based in Mountain View, Calif., says it responds to requests from copyright owners to remove illegally copied material. The company declined further comment Monday.
