Declan,

your Politech readers might be interested in this piece of international
perspective:

A Munich court of appeal upheld a lower court ruling, demanding that
German IT news service Heise Online remove a link to Slysoft.com, an
Antigua based company selling software enabling users to make copies of
copy-protected CDs and DVDs. Legal experts criticised the decision as
endangering press freedom.
