Don't want people to link to you? Then don't make your page publicly available 2005-03-09

Lawrence Lessig pointed out on his blog the other day about how the syndicators of a Bill O`Reilly column complaining about "unauthorized linking".

So following Lessig's invitation, here is the offending link.

A suggestion to the syndicators: If you don't want people to post "unauthorized" links, either password protect the page, or require people to view a page setting out terms first, or verify that the referrer field is set to an "authorized" source. It's not hard to do - lots of people have done it before you.
