The Court found that merely providing links does not qualify as distributing files protected by copyright, even though the sites generated revenue via advertising.

“In fact, the Judge ruled that file sharing, i.e the sharing of files protected by copyright, is a saving of expense and not a for-profit business. Therefore, in these cases you cannot apply the penal provisions of copyright law and the resulting administrative sanctions,” Sarzana notes.

Looks like some courts have a better understanding of laws than others who blindly follow the demands of the entertainment industry.
