Submission + - UKNova TV catch-up site removes links after copyright threat (zdnet.com)

Volfied writes: "The UKNova website has stopped letting users share links to copies of UK TV shows, apparently after legal threats from the copyright enforcement body FACT.

"UKNova is being forced to change. We have been issued with a 'cease and desist' order by FACT," the message began.

"Despite our efforts to cooperate with the UK media companies, FACT have stated: 'ALL links or access to content provided by UKNova are infringing, unless it can be proven that explicit permission from the copyright holder for that content has been obtained'.""
