Firstly, I'm talking about the legality of outbound deeplinks to other sites - not gaining inbound links for SEO. Has anyone any experience of being told to remove links for going against the terms and conditions of using a website based on the following reasons; 1. deep-linking is not allowed - links are only allowed to the homepage 2. linking for commercial reasons is not allowed (eg if your site is an Adsense site) I have only just encountered this & never thought anyone could really stop you from linking to public web pages. Having done a little research I have found some legal cases in Germany & Ireland...but looking for info on the UK and United Kingdom. Also, do you think you could get around it by using a url shortner or cloaking service on the outbound links? Thanks!
