Swedish Man Fined For Posting Links To Online Video Feeds

hcs_$reboot writes with a snippet from TechDirt (citing TorrentFreak): “Over in Sweden, it appears that a guy has been fined for linking to an online broadcast of a hockey game. We’ve heard stories of people getting in trouble merely for linking to unauthorized content, but this story is even more ridiculous. The guy wasn’t linking to unauthorized content. He was linking to an online video feed from the official broadcaster, Canal Plus. The issue was that Canal Plus was apparently technically incompetent in how they set up the feeds, and never intended to make the feeds public.”
