The Null Device

Welcome to the Digital Millennium: An outfit named, perhaps heartened by draconian new directions in copyright law, has come up with a new business model: web link licensing. That's right; they charge you US$50 to link to any article licensed through them. But that's not all: under their agreement, you may not criticise the article linked to or its author. There's one minor hitch: they may have no legal foundation for their power grab, though that may well change over the next few years. Galambosianism, thou art vindicated.
