Captain Copyright can take a hit

Captain Copyright can take a hit
Ottawa Citizen, publication date: 15 June 2006
"Just days after the second linking policy appeared, the terms were changed yet again with the reference to moral rights removed. The current policy provides that Access Copyright has the right to withhold permission to link from any site that in its opinion may be damaging to its reputation, particularly sites featuring the objectionable content described earlier.

Notwithstanding the flurry of changes, it is doubtful that any version of the policy is actually enforceable. First, it is by no means certain that the terms and conditions associated with the site constitute a binding contract. All contracts require offer and acceptance -- an offer from one party and the acceptance of the offer from the other."
