Legal notice because of a hyperlink - Mark Pollard v. Miramax Film

Mark Pollard, who runs the Kung Fu Cinema website, has received a letter demanding that he cease online sales of a Chinese film for which Miramax owns distribution rights. Pallard's web site only links to various other sites where copies of this film can be purchased. The Hero (a 2002 film starring Jet Li) review page on Pollard's site linked to, a U.S. company that sold Hero and other films. Although Pollard doesn't actually sell any films on his website and also stopped selling the movie some time ago, Pollard deleted the link after receiving the legal notice.
