Dec 18, 2000, 19:20 (2 Talkback[s])

"..I do EVERYTHING via hyperlink of some kind. By READING this article, you too are using hyperlinks. How do you feel about paying for every link you have on your website?.."

"It has come to our attention that British Telecom is actually trying to exercise their options to collect royalties on the outrageous claim that they OWN HYPERLINKS. What we need are people from all over to sign our petition, so that we can send it off to every media outlet on the planet."
