Site now hints that a possible return is imminent.
It’s been almost 3 months now that everybody’s favorite video streaming site TVLinks was busted by UK authorities.
The raid had been announced by a spokesman for the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) who said that “Sites such as TV Links contribute to and profit from copyright infringement by identifying, posting, organizing, and indexing links to infringing content found on the internet that users can then view on demand by visiting these illegal sites.”
But, the move was immediately criticized by myself and others who pointed out that TVLinks didn’t actually host any copyrighted material and simply linked to third party sites that did.
As the TVLinks disclaimer used to point out:
TV Links is not responsible for any content linked to or referred to from these pages.
TV Links does not host any content on our Servers
All video links point to content hosted on third party websites. Users who upload to these websites agree not to upload illegal content when creating their user accounts. TV Links does not accept responsibility for content hosted on third party websites.
In any event, fans of TVLinks may have good news to look forward to as a message on the site now hints of a possible return.
Something here Soon
Now what the”something” is as yet undetermined, but I’m sure that FACT had little success in proving a case of copyright infringement against a site comprised of nothing more than links to others.
By the way, while some of us await its possible return, don’t forget to check out interim alternatives to the site if you haven’t done so already.
