Here's something more that's stupid

An Australian judge has ruled hyperlinking to sites that infringe copyrights is itself infringement. This is dumb because as Copyfight points out: 1) apparently copying and pasting a URL would not be infringement and 2) unless you do copy and paste a URL, everywhere you go on the internet is through a hyperlink.

Once again we have a judgment where "good" companies such as Google are now in violation. However, because industry likes Google, it will never be sued.
