[FYI] NL: Judgement on deep linking


------------------------------- CUT --------------------------------

23 August 2000  

Dutch ruling points way on internet copyright  

Leading Dutch publisher PCM has failed in an attempt to stop a 
website carrying links to its stories.  


But the judgement takes the view that hypertext links between sites 
are the basis of the internet. In the Netherlands the decision means 
third parties will be able to aggregate content from the internet and 
sell advertising on their own sites.
