[FYI] Duth Pulisher Accepts 'Deep Linking' Ruling


   AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - PCM, the privately held newspaper group of the
   Netherlands, does not plan to appeal a Dutch court ruling that allows
   an online news service to link directly to newspaper Web sites,
   according to industry sources.
   PCM, which owns four out of the five largest national dailies, had
   sought an injunction against Kranten.com whose site largely consists
   of news headlines.
   Visitors who click on the headlines are taken directly to the full
   story displayed on the Web site of the newspaper itself.
   The publishing group objected to these direct or ``deep'' links,
   because readers were bypassing the home page which features the
   majority of money-spinning advertisements.
