    The Green Bay Packers Understand The Internet

    [size=12pt]The Green Bay Packers Understand The Internet
    [/size]


    We're pretty used to professional sports teams and leagues making ridiculous policies for their Web sites. But the Green Bay Packers might have just taken the taco.

    As discovered by Packer Backer Blog, the Packers have a "policy" that requires anyone who links to the Packers' home page -- anyone who links there -- to link ONLY to Packers.com, and not to any internal page. It all says so right there on their "copyright" page (http://www.packers.com/copyright/)... but whoops, there we went, linking internally again! Don't sue, Packers!

    Other sites may link without prior permission to the home page of the Green Bay Packers, www.packers.com, (the "Service") only through a plain-text link. Permission must otherwise be granted by us in writing for any other type of link to the Service and/or copyright content owned by the Green Bay Packers.

    Seriously: The Packers claim that their "copyright" says you can't link to anything but their homepage. Shame, too, because we'd just love to link to that ProShop. Oh well!

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Why would they do this?
