This is simply one of the silliest things I’ve heard in a long time. A hacker out of Romania published direct links to an online radio station’s stream and for that they are attempting to sue him. He has a public statement here explaining his feelings on the matter. He didn’t even explain how he did it, but it’s pretty obvious as there are at least a dozen ways of seeing the source of something on the page.
This all goes back to crappy client side security. People for some reason think web page source should be intellectual property and invisible to the user viewing them. How do they think people learn HTML in the first place? They view source and copy what they think is cool or useful. It’s as old as the browser! I feel bad for the radio station - not because they have their content taken in a way they don’t like - but because they got so publicly outed. This is why you should have net savvy lawyers working for you if you have a net presence.
