Deep Links Defended Public Citizen has stepped in on behalf of Barking Dogs, with a response (referencing the Kelly and Ticketmaster cases) to a Dallas Morning News demand letter regarding the removal of deep links to news stories.
"[W]hat Adelman is doing seems no different that providing readers with the page number at which a story is located in your print edition.
