I may be breaking the law just by posting this:

This legal ruling in Sydney may become a precedent that will radically change the internet as we know it.

It considers a simple link to other websites as a breach of copyright and as piracy.

If this rule is copied around the world then alternative news websites, search engines etc will have to be significantly modified or just shutdown.

What about blogging?

Well this would effectively put an end to all blogs.

Happy new year everybody.

1. Kil el a3yad w into bkheir.
2. I think it's a way of tijheel and keeping people from knowing each other.. Maybe I'm too drastic..
3. It's good to talk about Firas cause it reminds us that some people are trying to hide the "truth"
4. about the law again: wliii

mb, this is the way of controlling all the media and it's very dangerous. hopefully it won't be adopted everywhere and people would oppose to it.
