You got to give people time to see a thread before you start railing against them for not responding. It might take a day or two for people to get to it. Like me, I had the window up all night and am just getting to it now. I haven't had the chance to review the case yet, but it's hard to see how publishing a link alone can be anything other than protected speech. Would publishing the address where a crime had been committed be a crime? Would describing the route a getaway car used to flee a crime be a crime? Seems ripe for appeal, and a switch of lawyers. Anyone else notice more and more cases that almost sound like they have to have been sabotaged by the Defense Counsel to have lost? I thought that EFF even had a few precedent setting cases in this regard. Thanks for bringing the story to our attention OP. aHEMagain [/quote]
I was amazed to find that no threads were on GLP today discussing this landmark case against internet freedom and freedom of the press. We are truly doomed. I only heard of this case a few weeks ago and assumed it would be a hot-potato issue here among the freedom-mongers on GLP. I was sadly disappointed that nobody even posted anything regarding this decision. God help us.
