Attention arfcomm:
Hotlinking, inline linking, remote linking and many other terms are used to describe a way taking images, or other files and embedding it directly into a website. In other words, unauthorized use of someone else's bandwidth. Hotlinked files are files Not stored on your own server.

Like the new Cadillac station wagon, this fails on two levels:

1) Just because you CAN, doesn't mean you SHOULD

and,

B) It's an answer to a question that nobody asked.

Might be just a fun project car for engineers, It's been done before. Or BMW having fun with spy shot chasers?

From the page you posted.

The difference between hotlinking & linking to a web site:

When people link directly to a media file (gif, jpg, png, mov etc.), the webmaster of the original site has to pay the fees. When someone links to a page on that same website, the webmaster still pays fees but the content is shown in the form the designer (and copyright holder) wished, and they may be able to cover costs by displaying advertising on the page.

Super simply put... Hot Linking to media files = bad... Linking to pages = good ;-)




What's the big fucking deal. He posted a "cold" link to the page. How else would you describe it?

I didn't hot link to that particular page, because it was a page of watermarked photos, not text.

I'm sure an Australian is to blame...

When I first saw that I thought to myself, Dodge did this with the Magnum. The Magnum is not being made anymore for a reason. Why would Cadillac think because it has their name on it it's a good idea?
