Universal Suing Over Traffic Sent *To* Them

from the idiots-and-the-web dept

Apparently Universal is pissed off that movie-list is sending traffic to them and has told them they are “illegally” linking to their site. How ridiculous is this? There has to be more to this story. I guess the fear is that the links are directly to the trailers so it’s unclear that it’s Universals’ page. There are definitely easier ways around this than to forbid linking.
