Gatehouse link stupidity reaches settlement

Thanks to a commenter, here’s a link to the PDF of a settlement letter between Gatehouse and The New York Times Company over Gatehouse’s inane suit over links. The Times agrees to take down its links and not put up links to content that has a Gatehouse label attached (in the legal wording, a technological solution to prevent copying of its content and RSS feeds). Yet they still agree they can link and deep-link to each other.

I’m glad that this idiocy led to no precedent. Pity, though, that Gatehouse proves to be such a fool.
