    TV-Links.co.uk Raided, Owner Arrested !

    The TV-Links website has been shut down and it’s 26-year-old operator arrested after a raid by Gloucestershire Police in cooperation with an anti-piracy group called Fact (Federation Against Copyright Theft).
    What’s disturbing about this is TV-Links didn’t host any of the movies or shows themselves. All they did was link to videos on YouTube, Google Video, Stage6, and a whole bunch of Asian and Eastern European servers - none of which were owned or controlled by them. Arresting someone for linking to something shows a complete lack of understanding for how the Internet works. By their logic I should be arrested for linking to TV-Links and other sites like it.
    The chances of a successful prosecution are negligible but this guy will probably be bankrupted in the process and that’s probably what they want to do to make an example of him. If they really wanted to crack down on web piracy they would go after the sites hosting the videos, but they aren’t such easy targets.

    piracy will never be stopped. period. this guy in my neighborhood is in deep shit for downloading music off limewire. these people need to get the fuck over it. nobody wants to pay 20$ for a cd that has 1 song they like on there, or pay a monthly fee to itunes, or the like, for a service they would only use once every blue-moon.

    I think they deserve it. A site that you can get access to links to full unreleased movies in 2 clicks should be shut down. It's not that they didn't host the shit, but they made it easier to view pirated content.

    No they just helped the idiots of the world find out where to go. Not that it matters since they will never do anything useful.

    A man is now in prison because he runs a site where other people can link to low-resolution tv shows, hosted by Google. FACT did not raid Google, they raided a site which merely links to TV shows.

    Limewire isnt an illegal program, it just allows other pc's to connect to each other and dl, Limewire it self its perfectly legal and its designed for users to spread their OWN material across the world but people were like OMG IMMA SHARE MOOZIK AND SHIT, etc etc
