myVidster's linking to, and framing of, infringing videos, held not likely to constitute direct or contributory infringement

In Flava v. Gunter, an injunction case against, a social bookmarking site, the US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit reversed a preliminary injunction which had been granted by the district court against myVidster, holding that the site's linking to, and framing of, infringing videos hosted elsewhere, did not likely constitute either a direct or a contributory infringement of plaintiff's rights in the videos.
