Links to Podcast-Feeds a copyright infringement?

After providing links to publicly accessible MP3’s hosted on This American Life’s own servers, Jon Udell and Jared Benedict received friendly emails (no “nastygram” or formal ceast and desist letter) from Ms. Meister, This American Life’s webmaster, making a request to take down the hyperlinks and RSS feeds - accusing them of copyright infringement - or she’d regrettably have to get lawyers involved. Both webmasters voluntarily removed the items.
