Third Party Link Sharing
« on: January 08, 2014, 12:53:04 PM »
Hi,

There are plenty of websites on the nets which share the links of video sharing site to watch movies online... very common example is index4fun.com, desirulez.net  The site does not host movies and shares only links.  Also, the server is offshore as far i know.  The offshore servers allow warez linking, uploading nulled script which is legal according to Dutch Law in Netherland.

But my questions is, if the person is resident of India and running this kind of site on a offshore host.... can he be get sued for providing links to copyrighted movies which has been released in india as well as in America... Can a legal action be taken for this activity just for link sharing?

pls don't use the word "are u sure with lawyers" lawyers are known to be LEARNED

when you have been advised that linking does not warrant cause of action by a learned lawyer than take it for granted that it is true.

reason being this that only he can be sued who host the content, a link does not neither violate copyright nor does it attribute to any kind of legal action.

neither in India or any other part of the world.
