locked Re: “Media sharing” groups


 

I am not a lawyer. However, according to http://www.dmlp.org/legal-guide/linking-copyrighted-materials, allowing a link to copyight-infringing materials to stay up could be considered "Contributory copyright infringement." The case law isn't set in stone, though. As long as you respond to DMCA takedown notices by deleting any links (and possibly entire groups), you should be OK. I agree that you don't want to be hosting this sort of thing.
