Does a recent case threaten web linking?

Journalist Patti Waldmeir says that the recent U.S. 9th Cir ruling in Kelly v. Arriba Soft Corp threatens general linking on web sites.  The EFF agrees.  Is this case a threat to linking?  Nah, not quite.  I agree with Denise Howell on this one: This is an over-the-top assessment, and doesn't represent a fair reading of the case.  [See post by Denise]

Denise knows a bit about the legal side of the whole linking problem, having written an article about it.

Who can you trust?  Really.  That's the question...

ID Cards for `Trusted Travelers' Run Into Some Thorny Questions. The idea seemed simple: figure out who the good guys are, give them easy-to-recognize and hard-to-counterfeit ID cards and let them breeze past airport security. It wasn't. By Matthew L. Wald. [New York Times: Technology]

Anonymous Book buying is a fundamental right

"The Colorado Supreme Court announced a decision on Monday in Tattered Cover, Inc. v. City of Thornton. Relying on both the Colorado and United States Constitution, the court determined that a police search warrant for the book-buying records of a criminal suspect was unreasonable. The Court held that the information sought by the search warrant implicated a fundamental right protected by the state and federal constitutions, that is, the "fundamental right to purchase books anonymously, free from governmental interference."
