Is this going to lower Etsy's Google ranking?

"Google Appeases Hollywood But Rankles Internet Freedom Watchers"

From PCworld.com site -

www.pcworld.com/article/260762/google_appeases_hollywood_but_rankle...

Article begins: "Google's nod to Hollywood with its decision to demote in its search results sites accused of copyright infringement raises questions about fairness and the ability of suspected violators to challenge the move."

With all the (frequent) Etsy Forum threads about copyright infringement etc., wondering if this will affect Etsy's ranking.

Well.... I think that's aimed *much* more at pirate sites - those vampire sites who feature thousands of other people's stolen content - music, videos, etc. It's a constant war for legitimate sites to get those shut down.

But I don't know if trademark infringement is going to affect Etsy...!
I took it mean that google would lower the ranking of sites that had had numerous "take-down" notices....not sure that etsy fits into that category.
Interesting. I wonder!
