And the lawyers at the moment are guessing out-law.com [out-law.com].
Is linking to TM/copyright content now illegal? Who knows!
I've seen that said in various posts, but I'm lead to believe (armchair law) that as a UK citizen the owner can still be prosecuted even if the offence took place in another country. Although they would have to find the owner first.
Well Netherlands isn't included on that list of countries to host FACT statement [fact-uk.org.uk]
There's a difference between a link and an incitement to break the law, or being an accessory, or 'aiding and abetting'
We do not yet know what that other site is being charged with (if anything), and we do not know how similar this site is to that one (small details can make all the difference, in law).
We do not know, for example, if the links are identical, similar, or to even more 'suspect' sites.
So at this moment, it would be impossible to advise in any specific way.
But if it were me, I'd check the 'tone' of the site, and where those links were going.
BTW, I'm not a lawyer, etc., etc
... and I suspect this thread is in the wrong forum to attract the best response.
2. Have the company obtain an offshore internet multi-currency banking account and a debit card (available in locations like St Vincent).
3. Use the debit card to rent an anonymous dedicated server from someone like Zentek in Hong Kong. (They also supply private domain registrations).
4. Have your offshore company set up a merchant account with payments direct to your offshore bank.
It is possible to do all this without giving your real name, address or any other details to anyone (so I am told).
