Baidu Accused of Serving Counterfeit and Pirate Sites In SERPs [bbc.co.uk]
|The US has put China's top search engine Baidu on a list of "notorious markets" for counterfeit and pirated goods. |
The US Trade Representative (USTR) accused Baidu of steering consumers to third-party websites where pirated material is hosted.
Baidu is the most-visited website in China and among the top 10 in the world, USTR said.

Umm, and you can't find this type of content in Google?
I can show you a SERP where 930 of the 1000 listed sites are selling counterfeit goods. The first one is at position 5.
There's also several dozen results removed by DMCA on each of the 100 Google results pages, but the criminals have tens of thousands of domains.

Yes, you're right, it can be found everywhere, I've seen it myself.
I suspect what they are trying to say is that it's far more prevalent because they are mostly Chinese sites in its SERPs.
