    Maybe this has been covered in another thread, but I'd be interested to get opinions on the recent Danish court ruling that deep linking is illegal. Is it the beginning of the end or will it blow over?

    No, the entire thing is ludicrous and common practice. Bookmarks are deep links. How are they going to stop that? Search engines are fundamentally deep linkers. Are they going to try to change the fundametals of the Internet?

    There's a good article here:

    Here's another article - an older one - apparently legal precedent regarding deep-linking has already been set in the US in the Ticketmaster case:

    Thanks for the articles. That's kinda what I thought. The hulabaloo should blow over.

    I think it will. Deep linking is fundamental to the way the Internet functions.
