There were "about 11,500" links from Google to the newspaper pages.
Do you think they want to get rid of those links as well?

. . . in the age of Google and news blogs, an age in which people
increasingly come upon their news by skipping from one deep link to another
instead of going to newspapers' home pages, might it not be
counterproductive to stop people from deep linking?

Baradell [the Belo spokesman] explained that "how we proceed is very much
case by case," and he declined to discuss how Belo decides which deep links
to go after and which to let alone.
