    Since when do you have to break the law to have legal action taken against you?
    "Litigious" individuals/companies know that by threatening (unfounded) legal action people will suddenly comply because the cost of defending themselves is frighteningly expensive.

    You link to my site and I can sue you :) You've no right to refer any of my property without my permission.

    You're right, there is no explicit law for this, as it is quite understood that you can't refer any of my offline and online property on any of your online/ offline locations without my written permission. I can sue you even if gave permission verbally.

    What a load of bullshit! I can link to whoever I want to. I need NO ONE's permission to refer to anyones website. You can not sue me for doing that. You need to go and talk to an internet lawyer.

    ha ha ha ha, dude spend some time read some good articles on internet and internet marketing ethics, then this discussion may make some sense. This will also help you to stay updated and upgraded.
    All the best :)
    I would like to invite other experts to please shed some light on this issue as I might be wrong with what I said. Thanks in advance

    You can sue who you like, but no competent court would recognize a ruling for such a trivial issue originating from another country. Your permission is not necessary when others link to you since you are publishing something in the internet's public domain. The internet, by definition, is comprised of many small networks linking to one another. If everyone's permission was required before linking to them, the internet would not exist as we know it and there would be no place to read such ridiculous comments such as the one you posted.

    Maybe in India that is possible so check the law in the country of the "offending" website. You never know what you can get away with!

    I can't believe the impact of a link justifies the cost of bringing legal action. It's damn expensive to do down here in New Zealand.

    Used to be the "impact of a link" was to direct someone to your web site.

    No court of law will uphold such a suit and even if you do sue, you will end up wasting thousands of dollars to pay lawyers and court fees as you will never win such a suit.

    khemraj In this way there is no point to accept free submissions. Most submitters are from Asia countries, we know exactly from which, and they using gmail accounts. I still waiting for you sources that says directory owners need written permission to add listings?

    I personally wouldn't remove it on principal. I run a directory myself and everyone has (so far been very polite about it). Going in macho doesn't exactly inspire me to help them..

    Yes, it is very good advice. :) Many people using free gmail accounts to remove links on behalf someone else. I ask them to use domain email address. If I can't recognize someone as site owner or link submitter I can't make a deal.

    It's right here http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2012/07/new-notifications-about-inbound-links.html

    In a few situations, we have heard about directories or blog networks that won't take links down. If a website tries to charge you to put links up and to take links down, feel free to let us know about that, either in your reconsideration request or by mentioning it on our webmaster forum.
