Court: Dutch website hyperlink infringed copyright

http://j.mp/QZoEid (AP / KENS 5)

   "Wednesday's ruling is unusual because companies usually sue websites
    that actually publish copyright-infringing material, rather than sites
    that link to them.  But the court said GeenStijl called attention to
    naked photos of model Britt Dekker posted on a website called
    Filefactory by an unknown person shortly before publication of the
    November 2011 issue of the magazine.  The photos were pulled from
    Filefactory but GeenStijl provided links to locations of copies."
