Great post. Right on the money. Here's what doesn't make sense to me in the IFPI's DMCA notice you linked to. They say that these Google-hosted sites "are offering direct links to" recordings with copyrights that IFPI looks out for, and that they "have a good faith belief that the above-described activity is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law." The message never claims that Google is hosting the files -- just hosting pages that LINK TO the files. How is this a violation of DMCA or other copyright law? I don't think anyone needs permission to link to a file that someone else is hosting, regardless of what's in that file. So is the IFPI overreaching, or am I somehow incorrect? -Mike
