The States is debating whether or not a link to a foreign site can be controlled by the owners of content on the foreign site. That is, whether your copyright extends to the links to your material.

If you spent six seconds to think about this, this is ridiculous. That would similarly give ownership to book references and paper citations to the referants, which would change the entire history of copyright.

Makes me wonder about TransClusions however. -- SunirShah

Another argument against: a link is a means of identifying a page, like a title identifies a book. Titles are not copyright.
