The Right to Link in Germany Country Watch: Germany9/19/2000; 4:13:26 PM I'm fuzzy on the details, but Jan-William has brought to my attention that there is a legal scuffle in Germany regarding linking. 'Symicron accuses Müntz, author of the html-helpsite SELFHTML, of an illegal link to the American software FTP-explorer. The reason: Symicron has the German trademark for the word Explorer.'Protests are ensuing. I don't read German so the news article doesn't do me much good.Update: Thanks, Andrea, for the link to a good page in English describing the problem at Freedom for Links.
