    New York man faces five years in jail for ‘linking’ to online videos | The Raw Story


    So all those Youtube videos you naughties have been linking to- the ones not put up by VEVO, the band, or the label ... that's why Gunny has to go to prison and the FBI is surrounding your home as you read this

    You know what else can get you into trouble in RL? Making threats of violence against people on message boards.

    I've tried warning Gunny about that, but he doesn't listen. Now what does that have to do with the matter at hand?

    I'm not a Lawyer, but I'm willing to bet a couple of ambiguous words in the actual ruling make it so it's not the actual "I link to youtube videos" part that's illegal...it's got to be something else like they WAY they're linking (somehow maybe profiteering from doing so) or some such thing. I'd throw some dough down on that bet. Oh....gambling. Damn. Man's ruin. Chicks, Liquor, Gambling.

    Actually, they are not alleging he linked to content, he is in trouble because a record company alleged that he hosted content, and the government seized his website without a hearing.

    Guilty until proven innocent, and you do not get a trial to prove that.

    It's all about money. As long as no money is involved, most people don't care.

    The special agent detailed 17 copyrighted sports programs he was able to watch when he "clicked on links" at channelsurfing.net.



    Guilty.

    Suit him up.
