@Copyright

Apparently, merely being the ISP selling services to someone who hyperlinks to “illegal” music files is enough to get you sued these days.

No, not in the USA, here in Australia.

Provision of the link is failing to prevent “infringing downloading” and so you are treated as if you provided the file (which is not on your site, only linked from it) and sued.

Mailing list managers and bloggers could be in trouble as a result: “We don’t make any distinctions between big websites or small websites” said the lady running Music Industry Piracy Investigations.
