Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
BBC News - Linking to free web content is legal, says EU Court

Websites can link to freely available content without the permission of the copyright holder, the European Court of Justice says.

The court's decision came after a dispute in Sweden between journalists and a web company that had posted links on its site to online news articles.

A Swedish court had asked the EU court to consider whether this broke copyright law.

The "position would be different" for links that bypass a paywall.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
