Hypothetically speaking (Not enough threads start that way!):
Let’s say my friend has a poker website. Let’s call it straightdope poker board. It has the address of straightdopepoker.com. Could I, (only knowing the web address) link another address to this? Say as a joke, I wanted grossuglygirls.com linked to his site, so I buy it with the intention of forwarding anyone who goes to this site to his site.
Does he have to give some sort of permission in order to let me link this site to it? If not, as an outsider would I be able to link almost any name available to any website? So if I wanted to link smokecrack.com (even though I’m pretty sure it’s already taken) to a partnernership for a drug free america’s website, I could as long as smokecrack.com was available?
If this doesn’t make sense, I apologize it has been a long day. Feel free to yell at me.
