I wonder how this one will stand up in court. The outcome may affect the thousands of websites that post links to news.
US director Quentin Tarantino has sued gossip website Gawker for contributory copyright infringement after it posted a link to a leaked screenplay.
A link to The Hateful Eight script remained on Gawker's Defamer blog on Monday despite demands from Tarantino's lawyers to take it down.
They argued the site had effectively cost him royalties he might earn from the eventual publication of the script.
But Gawker said posting a link was part of its job to provide information.Gawker Sued Over Link to Leaked Tarantino Screenplay [bbc.co.uk]
