Dumbest web site “user agreement” ever

Via BoingBoing, I present this excellent discussion of a some folks who believe they can get away with the following:

By using this site you agree and understand that the HTML code, look, feel, content, company name, logo, text, and any likeness or derivative of such content is the sole property of Inventor-Link LLC and may not be used in any manner without the expressed written permission of Inventor-Link LLC. Furthermore, we strictly prohibit any links and or other unauthorized references to our web site without our permission.

Of course, they’re suing someone… sorry, folks, but neither the web nor fair use work this way. If you don’t want links to your web site, take it down. If you don’t want folks talking or writing about your business, close it.

    Never mind. I think it was the same site.

    Or at least the same law firm.

    I didn’t actually look at (use) the site. That way, I can say the agreement doesn’t bind to me 🙂
