Real-World Case: Web Deception

As it turns out, there was no article on this website.  If he had paid the $9.50 fee, he would have been redirected to the real article on the Oracle Technical Network (OTN).

This gentleman was personally taken-aback to find that this site was re-selling hyperlinks, and he wondered if it was illegal.

The content looks like an original article with no disclosure about the legitimate owner of the content.

It is never mentioned that the article is nothing more than a hyperlink.  There is no value-added content whatsoever, no commentary, nothing but the fee.

While doing some research, he consulted an attorney, Internet Law expert Nicholas Ackerman, who told him:

It’s not against the law for a website to collect and sell collections of related hyperlinks.  Websites such as “News Clipping Services” sell hyperlinks to the works of others.

It may not be legal, however, to represent these hyperlinks as if they were the proprietary property of the website.  This practice might fall within the realm of U.S. consumer fraud laws.  There are strict state and federal statutes against unfair or fraudulent business practices, as well as truth in advertising laws that are designed to protect Internet users against deception.

Selling the work of others and presenting it as original content violates an honest user’s sense of justice.  In the next section, guidance will be presented on how to seek justice for a whole host of offenses.
