An anonymous reader writes: It is now illegal to link to copyrighted material. In Sweden, as a consequence of the Pirate Bay trial, one of the major networks is suing a 31-year old blogger for linking to a streamed video hosted on another site. In essence, this means you could get sued for linking youtube videos. I guess this is what is coming to countries without the protection of "fair use". What is the situation in your country is this happening in other countries as well?
In essence, the consequence of this is that Google is illegal.
