No i didn't hear about the injunction, i take it this was in america?

Even though the judged ruled favourably, it is not the be-all and end-all of it... a different case could produce a different result. Also, who were the parties involved in this case? another thing, if it is proven (that the linking is illegal) then ZT will have even more trouble on their hands.

Aah, the DMCA... you make some pretty bold statements there. What sections specifically do you believe they are breaking (sites and forums)? (i'm assuming the copyright stuff) but i've only read bits and pieces of the DMCA, so i won't comment just yet.

you seemed to imply that a rom requests forum would get them im trouble, but seeing as how they're already in trouble why bother? is that wat you meant?

If they already are in trouble then i'm sure they wouldn't want to make it worse.
