Sensible. Merely linking to a website doesn’t involve any uploading, downloading, copying or, so far as I’m aware, any other infringement of the holder’s copyright.

If only American laws were so sensible, then the original Grooveshark.com would still be alive.Also, large corporate malware distributors (Facebook, Sony, Google, etc.) would be forced to pay for their crimes. And making backup copies of things wouldn’t be a legally viable excuse to sue for millions of dollars.
