Yes, this case law is emerging. Here is a recent article about a newspaper suing over someone linking to their site.

Also according to Wired, Tickets.com won the case against Ticketmaster with the judge ruling "Hyperlinking does not itself involve a violation of the Copyright Act. There is no deception in what is happening. This is analogous to using a library's card index to get reference to particular items, albeit faster and more efficiently."

[GotToBTru]: that sounds fair to me
[davies]: I've just "approved" using syscalls in perl through inline c for at least the third time, but it still appears to me as unapproved. Is this just me?
[LanX]: erix: other side of the pond
[LanX]: davies: same problem
[Corion]: It had been approved as a Perl Monks Discussion. It should now be approvable into SoPW
[choroba]: Approved
[LanX]: hmm aproval doesn't stick after move? Or was it a race condition
