This is a copyright question that I’m a little confused by… I know it could also depend on the country that the server is located but this is a general question based on the ethics of the world web…
Say for example we create a search engine or a simple web page, we allow you to view the latest movies ( In theatres now ) or TV episodes etc. We simply create links to other websites that hold this info.
My thinking is this in general, Sure anyone can be made an example of by a court order but would the rulings win ?.
If you are liable then should Google also be liable ?
OK, this is another example and probably a bad one but I’m thinking out load now,
Say Joe, asked me if he could get any ecstasy.
“No problems Joe just call Henry and he will help you”
Am I still liable with no financial advantage, just helping joe.
Question: Are we still Liable for any copyright issues by suppling links… even if the info or responsibility is not ours… same as Google does but without financial gain ??
