National Public Radio is the Latest Organization to Try to Ban Linking to Its Site
WiredNews is among the hundreds of sites that have reported that National Public Radio is asserting that it has the right to demand that other websites not link to NPR.org without permission. Everyone else in the world is trying to build traffic to their websites, but sites like NPR, Runner's World, and The Dallas Morning News are concerned about the subject matter of the web sites that link to them, and perhaps the context of the links.
WiredNews is probably OK with us linking to them. So, we'll link to them talking about NPR.
