Even that might be iffy. In some cases, even linking to infringing material has been determined to be as bad as hosting it yourself. 2600 magazine used to link to sites that would allow you to download DVD decryption software (named DeCSS), but a judge ruled that was the same as hosting it yourself.

Other variations on the theme have been heard around the world, too. As such, even linking to copyright infringing material might have a nasty effect, depending on how far these laws wind up going.
