News Summary: Media industry sounds piracy alarm

(AP) - BLAMING GOOGLE: The music and movie industries are again warning on online piracy, saying illegal downloads are on the rise and search engines like Google aren't doing enough to stop them.

NEW LAW?: Entertainment executives say they have no intention of trying to revive failed legislation that would have imposed unprecedented regulations on Internet companies. That proposal last year prompted a fierce backlash from tech companies and activists.

CHANGES: Ad networks, payment processors and Google have said they made changes to combat piracy, but the entertainment industry says they have not worked.
