And to add another analogy from WIRED: "In a Swedish Supreme Court
decision from 1963, he noted, a defendant who held a friend's coat while
the friend beat someone up was considered culpable."

So what they are only the fences not the thieves ? They set up a business
with the express intention of helping people steal music, film etc. This
is EXACTLY who the authorities should go after but most are in countries
that will not prosecute them. I doubt this will make any dent in the
illegal download business but I think it is great none the less.

they provide links to files that could be used to download things via
