And another case of misleading description -- have a look at the
source of e.g.

  http://classic-web.archive.org/web/20080612180942/tvshack.net/tv_shows/Deadliest_Catch/season_1/episode_1/

and I'm pretty sure you will agree with me that this site was not just
'linking' to sites which showed bootlegged copyright material, but was
'embedding' it.

So, another stimulus for us to get our document on this out there!
