A Dutch court to be charged with piracy copyright infringement.  Same Dutch court ruled that discussions of the general locations of infringing content constitutes copyright infringement.  A team of investigators has uncovered in their very court documents references to places that house or serve infringing content, which qualifies as a violation.  While the court is expected to plead not guilty by reason of sovereign immunity, legal experts believe that the entire Dutch court system will have to recuse itself, and a summary judgment will be awarded to the content industry.

Damn.  (See Boing Boing: Dutch court rules that discussing piracy [sic] is the same as committing piracy [sic]; link is believed to be free of infringing content, but if you really want to get your hands on some infringing content simply visit Google)
