    This is unfortunately not new: Better Business Bureau, Kohl's, Bloomberg, the Green Bay Packers, and Oprah (among others) do the same thing

    Prohibiting linking to even a site's homepage is unfortunately not new.

    Here is a short list of sites that explicitly prohibit linking to their site:

These organizations may link to our home page, to publications or to other Web site information so long as the link: (a) is not in any way misleading; (b) does not falsely imply sponsorship, endorsement or approval of the linking party and its products or services; and (c) fits within the context of the linking party's site. We may consider and approve in our sole discretion other link requests from the following types of organizations: commonly-known consumer and/or business information sources such as Chambers of Commerce, American Automobile Association, AARP and Consumers Union; dot.com community sites; associations or other groups representing charities, including charity giving sites, online directory distributors; internet portals; accounting, law and consulting firms whose primary clients are businesses; and educational institutions and trade associations.
