Teacher Convicted for Linking to Pirated Answer Sheets

While not the smartest thing I've seen a teacher do, I certainly don't agree with suing the pants off the guy either.

A Dutch teacher has been convicted for linking to pirated copies of math answer sheets stored on file-storage sites. The Amsterdam court ordered the teacher to remove the hyperlinks from his personal website and pay the litigation costs. According to the verdict the teacher facilitated students’ copyright infringements, this despite the fact that downloading for personal use is legal in the Netherlands.
