Can hepatitis B be transmitted by urine?

Sherri asked the Naked Scientists:
   
I was told urine is sterile. I agree that it is sterile until it exits the body, but just because it is sterile does not mean that we can not catch infections from it does it? Like HIV or Hepatitis.

These can be caught from blood contamination, which is sterile, so why not urine?

What do you think?
