Music download case in Australia

This is a new case against a site that offered MP3 music. The problem is that the article is not clear on the type of technlogy that was being used to serve the files. It seems that the accused was not serving files, but was offering hyperlinks to other sites that hosted the files. This makes it an interesting case on hyperlinnking. If one follows some similar cases on linking to infringing material in the United States (such as the DeCSS cases), then one could argue that the site was indeed acting against the law.

Interesting case.
