The editor of the book, Boston Tea Party Book, Michael Scott Ioane has been ordered by Magistrate Judge Snyder of Fresno, CA to remove his name from the site: Boston Tea Party Book.

NOT because he isn’t, in fact, the editor, but because the name links to another site about his business services. The order, given through pre-trial services, is that since it links to another site, he may be giving the impression of providing tax advice.

What?? Are web site owners responsible for claims of service made on sites we link to now?

Anyone know of the legality of this kind of thing? Or is it just another knee-jerk reaction to the Boston Tea Party demonstrations coming up?
