Extra! Extra! Dallas Morning News Doesn't Understand the Web

May 1, 2002

Site Barks About Deep Link. The Dallas Morning News wants BarkingDogs.org, as well as anyone else, from linking to specific articles. Rather, they want the web to only link to their front page. This is the equivalent of saying that "you can tell people to read articles in the paper, but you can't tell them what issue of the paper, or what section and page to look in." An investment in a copy of Small Pieces Loosely Joined might be much more valuable than the legal fees for this case...
