German Sorkin?

Copyright Anonymous Coward writes "Last year several news sources reported about the website dontlink.com from David Sorkin, associate professor of law at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. His website fights "stupid linking policies" that attempt to impose restrictions on other sites that link to them. Now a German law student joined the fight against linking restrictions and starts getting media attention in Germany. His list of "stupid German linking policies" can be found at the website Links & Law (http://www.linksandlaw.com/linkingcases-linkingpo licies-beispiele.htm). (Read on for a link to English content).UPDATE by RR: /. thread here.

Contrary to the model of dontlink.com the German site refrains from linking to companies that prohibit linking without their consent. The site only states the URL of the websites with the linking policies. The page with the linking policies is in German, but the rest of the website (http://www.linksandlaw.com) is in English and covers many legal aspects of linking."
