Hijacking affiliate links

I've been given a heads up that has done some excellent sleuthing and investigation into hijacked LJ affiliate links:

What is LJ doing to my links?
What is LJ doing to my links? Part 2
What is LJ doing to my links? Part 3

Expect this post to be update through the day as I find out more and come up with a good summary.

ETA: No good summary, but I feel like I should say code got taken down, etc etc, business as usual.

You're right, I didn't even think about that!

Occured to me as a book review came past my friends page. Which had more entries than normal to skip past as I'd just finished reading all the comments on the news post.

So not just a breach of Amazon's TOS, but also a breach of the copyright of everyone they syndicate onto here. Wonder how many of the other sites have restrictions that make this wrong? Bet eBay does; is someone already looking?
