Does Supreme Court Decision On Hyperlinks Make Stealing Copyrighted Material Way Past Easy?

"If a link or hyperlink by itself does not constitute “publication” for defamation purposes, it is difficult to see how it could, by itself, constitute publication or reproduction or any other activity covered by the Copyright Act."

So just quietly linking to a site that lets you download copyrighted material, or running P2P software,  may be OK according to the Supreme Court Of Canada.  Although, if you rig things right, you can slander the ass off anyone you want.  BOOYAH! Communism and random smear jobs rule the virtual world!
