RIAA linking to pirated software?

Rumour has it that the RIAA is linking to pirated software. This is an interesting step to take for them, especially because it has been decided earlier in the DeCSS case that even the act of linking to web sites containing legal infringements is a legal infringement.

The impact of this case is going to be interesting. This is not the first time that the RIAA, which is known for their lawsuits against countless users of file sharing software and Linux video players, is itself in infringement of the rights they claim to defend.

Update: This is just a case of cross site scripting, there is no infringement on behalf of the RIAA.
