1007.3 Hypertext Links

1007.3 Hypertext Links

A hypertext link is generally a URL or bookmark within a website. These elements are not copyrightable, because they are essentially addresses or facts and because they are simply a method for accessing content within a website.

Although a URL or bookmark in and of itself would not be protected by copyright, the creative text or graphic that embodies a hypertext link may be copyrightable if that text or graphic contains a sufficient amount of original authorship.
