Another reason laws putting limits on the tubes is bad

Britain Copywrite law makes no sense

What kind of sense does it make for someone to be arrested for linking to things that have already been placed online? Why is it that the corporation is totally in the clear, but the guy who strcitly provided the linkage goes to jail? And hell, half the time the clips didn't even load on my computer. Not sure if it hated Macs or if it hated Safari, but eihter way, this is bullshit. Jeeis Cantrell and Black 20 evidently just made someone in charge of ridiculous charges aware there was a tite doing this. Hey! I'm linking to a news article! Arrest me!!!
