TAG Product: Publishing and Linking on the Web


The goal of this work is to promote understanding between those who draft, approve, and enforce laws relating to copyright and publishing with the technical community responsible for Web technologies and their use. Specifically, we will:

  1. Clarify the ways in which the Web's technical facilities operate to store, publish, and retrieve information
  2. Clarify pertinent terminology that is used by the Web technical community, and where pertinent, clarify points of confusion with respect to similar terminology used elsewhere (esp. in the law)
  3. Clarify the technical and operational impact that results or would result from current or potential legislation that might be drafted to restrict publishing, linking, or transformation on the Web.
