Media Fails To Understand Bittorrent

BBC NEWS | Technology | Pirate Bay retrial call rejected
The Pirate Bay is well-known for hosting lists of websites where people can get pirated copies of movies, music, software and TV shows. The Pirate Bay don't like to any websites which host pirated material. They host torrent files which allow users to send files between themselves. Google in fact lists websites where you can downloaded copyrighted material, and this BBC article doesn't have a problem with linking to the Pirate Bay website. How many links do there have to be before it stops being illegal? Like if you link to something that links to something that links to something that has copyrighted material, is that illegal? That's what the pirate bay does, that's what Google does, and now what the BBC does.
