The lawyers for Chain Leader magazine contacted us and threatened us with legal action for copyright infringement if we continued to display their magazine on our site. [their magazine was located on this page in an Iframe]
Since we were presenting their site in its entirety without modification, since we were not claiming any of their work as our own, we believe that what we were doing was completely legitimate and was actually helping their business by exposing our readers to their magazine.
It is our opinion that we were not breaking any laws and that we were using this page to serve our readers while also providing a direct benefit to Chain Leader magazine.
Apparently, the people in charge of the magazine who also direct their legal resources don’t have any idea how the Internet works. Good luck to them in their pursuit to capture market share from online magazines like Nation’s Restaurant News with editorial policy like this.
We apologize to any of our readers who are used to coming here to read Chain Leader magazine. We also regret that we can not in good conscience provide a link to their site.
