An ethics group is urging Congress to scrutinize Google Inc.'s copyright controls after finding hundreds of apparently pirated movies available on the Internet search leader's Web site.
In letters sent to several lawmakers, the National Legal and Policy Center excoriated Google for allowing its video-hosting service to become an online theater for showing and promoting illegally copied movies.
The grievances made to Congress focused exclusively on content found on Google's Web site, rather than the company's more popular YouTube subsidiary. Google says it adheres to federal law by removing unauthorized content whenever asked by copyright owners.
