Bought laws and judges.
"Don't wannabe a shill for the record companies, but if you are going to index copyrighted content and make no effort to remove indexes of copyrighted material, then you are aiding and abetting. Simple as."
Bullshit, imho. Who is _really_ infringing the copyright here?
The guy who puts something in the Usenet or the company who searches from the material that is _publicly available to anyone_? Even you.
You see that MPAA is not doing _anything_ to sue those delivering the content, the real infringers. That should be the least requirement before you can sue anybody for abiding.
"Guilty by giving the address" is the point here and that's ridiculous: It's not by any definition copyright infringment.
The judge is an idiot and the law is even more idiotic. "Abiding" needs that there's also somebody doing the real "crime" (=infringment) at same court: Did you see those? I didn't.
So judge decides whatever he wants, basically: I'm 100% sure there is perfectly valid grounds for exactly opposite decision, also.
