Oh, this is precious. Not being content with opening up some innocent schmuck to potential harassment, we have this recent gem from the Calgary Herald:
Porn re-router fined $15,000

A man has been ordered to pay $15,000 in damages after he set up a shadow website for a Canmore bicycle shop that re-routed Internet users to a gay pornography website...
At first, InformCycle.com forwarded users to Rebound's website. But for 16 days in November 2004, Draper programmed the web page to take customers to a gay pornography site.
That meant people looking for Inform's website -- but who accidentally typed ".com" instead of ".ca" -- were redirected to the pornography.
And why is this amusing? Oh, I don't know ... it might have something to do with one of Dick's websites.
It's not like I really give a crap about this one way or the other but if there are any good Calgary lawyers out there reading this, drop me an e-mail. Let's chat.
