For your information, the image above is a parody of Google based on the term "Majors" which is used in France (and maybe elsewhere?) to define companies like Sony, Vinvendi etc which monopolise the entertainment media industry.
Links such as "images" etc all have a copyright symbol added to them, a button "free search" has been greyed out and only the button "I have money" is available.
