Comment Re:Did any of you actually read the complaint?! (Score 1) 308

According to the subject is actually accused of EMBEDDING, not linking. That is, he is alleged to have embedded copyrighted video streams (and/or their surrounding pages) inside his own site with surrounding ad content, instead of linking the user to the actual hosting web site. The major mistake by ICE appears to be a failure to actually use the word "embed" in their complaint. I would expect a takedown or lawsuit if I did this, so it's difficult for me to be surprised. Of course, that's no reason not to retrieve the links from the Internet Wayback Machine and (properly) link them from all of our home pages.

Kind of like how Google Images embeds my copyright images without my consent?

I finished uni the following year and never did find out the results of the experiemnet, anyone know?
