. . . Iain, are you talking about a link as in "click here to go to

Tracy's statement brings to mind a question (which may or not be related
to copyrights) I have had about linking to other Internet Web sites. Do
you need to get permission from the organization or corporation whose
page you want to link to prior to placing a link in your own Web page?
I'm planning to have a page in my organization's intranet site that lists
Internet Web sites of interest, such as Oracle Corporation, Microsoft,
and the like. Some people have told me I need permission from these
corporations; others say I do not. I think I should get the corporation's
permission. What do you all think?
