UPDATE: January 7th, 2013

After receiving multiple complaints regarding this offer DCT contacted Laplink fearing there must be some misunderstanding or other easily rectified reason behind the snafu. We received the following response from Thomas Koll, CEO of Laplink:

the Email Promotion was sent to a selective audience of educational and corporate professionals. In no way was this promotion authorized to be send out in your news letter.  I would urge you to delete any reference to this promotion from your web site. Damages could be significant.

Laplink_afterAs this promotion was listed on multiple sites and Laplink did not take steps to protect the promotion’s page, or limit access to the page, we can only suspect that Laplink did not expect their promotion to go viral. We listed this promotion in good faith knowing the page was “open to the public” and the offer was valid at the time of posting. {insert sarcasm} Nor did we know authorization was needed when linking to a publicly accessible web page. {end sarcasm}

Interestingly the page is still online though it now indicates the offer has expired (screenshot at left).

However, based on the tone of Mr. Koll’s response and the (not so slightly) veiled threat I’ve decided to leave the page up so that DCT readers know why the promotion was not valid and also so others may find the information when searching. I’ve removed any hyperlinks in the article so readers do not inadvertently click them, but also so that Laplink does not gather any Google bonus from the incoming links.


More importantly, we would also like to apologize to all DCT readers who may have been inconvenienced ~ Dave H
