Warning about certain links

Last Update: October 27, 2016

My husband has just told me about some news he read online that basically said if you happen to link to media news e.g, newspapers, then there is a chance you will be charged something called link tax.It could be any amount, from £500-£1000. Something to do with European Union rules on copyright. I don't know if this has been made law yet, but I thought this was something we would all need to know about.:-))Steph

Newspapers have been reducing in size and hiking prices for the last several years in the US due to internet usage. This is a gougy way to stay afloat.

This will have the opposite effect if implemented. I don't think there's anything to worry about here. Pages lose rank with less inbound links which will reduce traffic. This is just another dying gasp from members of an obsoleted industry that don't know how or can't adapt, in my opinion.
