I noticed someone reluctant to post a piccy in a thread tonight for "copyright reasons"
Websites can link to freely available content without the permission of the copyright holder, the European Court of Justice says
The "position would be different" for links that bypass a paywall
In a statement it said: "The owner of a website may, without the authorisation of the copyright holders, redirect internet users, via hyperlinks, to protected works available on a freely accessible basis on another site."

That was probably me in my Ruby Loftus thread - many thanks for the link!
I believe I could have provided a *link* to one of the many images of the picture concerned but I wanted to provoke a broad discussion. That said, posting a copyright image to the thread itself may well be a different matter and I preferred to err on the side of prudence; respect to the resolute poster who did so!
