In a complaint from the music industry trade body that was emailed to the search engine, the BPI highlights 38 search results that "directly link to sound recordings owned by [BPI] members". Tracks from Eminem, Michael Buble and the cast of Glee are among those available through the links.
The BPI also highlighted that when web users enter certain phrases containing artists and titles, Google displays a number of sites where the track can be illegally downloaded within the first few pages of results.
"In most cases, Google takes down the links in question, following its own internal procedures," BPI spokesman Adam Liversage told Cnet.
However there is no word from Google as to whether it plans to remove the links.
