[LINK] Link's German offshoot

"LINK is a visionary information service created for the Internet by
the science publisher Springer.
"LINK is divided according to field into the so-called Online
Libraries of life sciences, chemical sciences, geosciences, computer
science, mathematics, medicine, physics & astronomy, engineering,
environmental sciences, law, and economics. ..."
So it's just another of the giants catching up with the Internet.
But it means that our fearless leader (i.e. Tony Barry, as distinct
from John Howard), can look forward to an action by Bertelsmann in
trademark law, requiring us to stop using the word 'link'.
And our fearful leader (i.e. John Howard, as distinct from Tony
Barry) will be mightily confused, because he thought the laws that
the U.S. instructed him to pass were supposed to help U.S. companies
rather than German ones.
