Here is a tweet he posted just a couple of minutes ago.

He is basically accusing Google of being a leader of online piracy. He further claims that Google stream movies for free and is spending millions lobbying to continue doing so.
Last time I checked, Google has some of the best monitoring tools in the business to detect copyright infringement on their YouTube video sharing platform. It is impressive how fast their system detects copyrighted material in videos uploaded by users. Especially when hours’ worth of media is uploaded every minute on their network.
Google streams movies for free. Of course, this is done in partnership with the content producers. Google also rents movies for a price. Google also now operates a digital media store that sells music.
Very few good things can be said about News Corporation which was recently involved in a major scandal that infringed on privacy of citizens in UK.
