More on the law
Here is a link for a series of short articles about the legal issues of frames(yes, we already know they're a crime...sorry a bad pun, but I couldn't resist), images, and hyperlinking. The articles are a few years old so maybe the laws/legal reasoning has since changed, but they still provide an interesting alternative way to think about web design.

Wow, this is getting really complicated and even scary. Sued over frames? Mis-leading metatags? Interesting articles, thanks for pointing them out.

Well, nobody was sued merely because they used frames. Frames aren't all as bad as class members have made them out to be, when used properly (much like most things in life).
People were being sued because they included other peoples content on their website by wrapping it in frames so that it looked like their own.
Just wanted to clear that up.
