Orbitz linking policy

Posted Mar 14, 2005 in Miscellaneous.

I'm only posting this because Eric Meyer mentioned it, and I thought it was stupid. Among the new Orbitz terms and conditions is this gem:

We welcome links from a third party site to the home page of our Site, through a plain text link, provided that (a) you give Orbitz prior written notice of such link by contacting Orbitz Customer Service, to request Orbitz's permission to establish the link; (b) you discontinue providing a link to our Site if so requested by Orbitz; (c) you do not imply in any fashion that Orbitz is endorsing any of your products or service or is affiliated with you, (d) you do not present Orbitz in a false light, or provide misleading or false information about Orbitz, or its Site or Services, (e) you do not remove or obscure the copyright notices, or other notices on this Site; (f) you do not use any Mark of Orbitz; and (g) you do not replicate, frame or mirror the content of the Site.

We reserve the right to require you to remove links to the Site, in our sole discretion.

Linking to any page of the Site other than to the homepage is strictly prohibited in the absence of a separate linking agreement with Orbitz.

Like Eric, I do not agree to the Orbitz terms and conditions, so I won't be using their site. Their legal department can kiss my ass as I hotlink to their crappy logo:

Ignore this image

Thanks to Google, they won't be getting any PageRank from me either!
