The same as my example. Fair use rights are there!

If someone wants to prevent you from linking to their site, there are
technical means to do so.

The Web was conceived for the dissemination of scientific knowledge by
Tim Berners-Lee of CERN, a European particle physics laboratory. The
concept of hyperlinking wasn't new but his was the first decent,
working implementation.

The Web was _NOT_ conceived for commerce. That took a few months to
show up.
