When the Bandit directs his watchers onto backinamo.com, it’s still 3 or 4 mouse clicks (or taps) to find the thread in question. It’s not like it’s on the homepage of backinamo.com. So I wouldn’t classify that as direct advertising. Even if the law was updated so to include indirect advertising, the punters will always be 1 step ahead of the law.
It’s the same debate as piracy. A new law comes up, the pirates find another loophole. A new preventative mechanism comes up, the pirates will find another way to circumvent it. A new copy protection method comes up, a new crack is released. A torrent web site gets shut down, 3 more torrent sites will appear.
