A hypertext link joins one website to another website. It is not clear whether linking from one website to another website infringes copyright in the linked website. It is possible that anyone whose website includes links could be held responsible for any page to which it is linked, even if this link is indirect and involves passing through unconnected parties. Ideally, you should ensure that, if you wish to include a link to another website, you have permission from the owner of the website to do so. A linking agreement could be used for this purpose.
