there are ways to protect from "threats." The linking is quite safe, though. I'm surprised there isn't a national blackout for anything nfl on google vid and youtube! ha ha... that's the way they would want it.
Damn, I know this stuff, too. There is no validity in copyright because there is no lawful contract. But, that's a door for discussion. It should be covered in the UCC, the highest authority. This is something to look into sometime.
Threats are just that. I'll link, anyway, and host torrents that anyone could get. Those can't be touched. hmm... alright. Thanks.
