The short answer is, no, you do not have to ask permission to link on
the web.

Here's a link that explains a little more:
http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/LinkMyths.html

Also, from http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/IPR-FAQ-20000620.html:
"May I link to the W3C site? Of course. Links are merely references to
other sites. You don't have to ask permission to link to this site — or
any other website. See ("link myths" for more on this)."
