I read the publishing and Linking draft again and I'm wondering if we can
make statements like:

- If you include copyrighted material you violate copyright.  If you link to it
you may not violate copyright

- If you include of link to illegal material you can the prosecuted for "aiding
and abetting"

- If you include or link to seditious material you can be prosecuted by the
prevailing government

- If you have a copyright to printed material that carries over to its electronic form

Also, Best practice 1 says "Legislation that forbade transformations on unlawful material would similarly limit the services that service providers could provide."  I don't know what that means

All the best, Ashok
