Regional Court:

The regional court of Hamburg ruled on May 12, 1998, that web site editors are obligated to answer for the contents of linked pages.  The only way to avoid responsibility, ruled the court, was to dissociate expressly from the contents of the linked pages.  We have different linked pages on the this site and we have to state clearly that:

We did not have any influence on the organization and contents of the linked pages.  Herewith we dissociate expressly from all contents of all linked pages on the MacChess pages. This clarification applies to all links on MacChess.
