copyrights and linking?

A friend of mind has a portfolio site at jen-ross.tripod.com. On it she
links to (about 20 - 35) photos that she had taken while working for
politicswatch.com (http://jen-ross.tripod.com/photos.htm)

She recently recieved an email from her former employer asking her to modify
her site stating that her request to post 35 politicswatch pictures outside
the politicswatch.com domain is unreasonable.

He referred her to their copyright document.

I thought that acceptable use of copyrighted material allowed you to link to
material providing you don't portray it as your own. (see

I'm confused. Is she infringing on their copyright?
