Universal City Studios, Inc. v. Corley, 273 F.3d 429 (2d Cir. 2001).

Isaac, I think you need to read Universal City Studios a little more carefully.  It in no way stands for the proposition that merely linking to a website, deep or otherwise, is impermissible.  It's a case about DVD decryption software and addresses an injunction prohibiting a "bad guy" from linking to sites offering nefarious software.  It's a contributory infringement issue where the links are the means of directing the user to tools facilitating infringement.

Jeff, I believe I indicated that the case was about contributory copyright infringement and that the connection to what we were discussing was by analogy.
 
But I led you to expect a deep linking case, so I figure I owe you one.
 
 
Ticketmaster Corp. v. Tickets.Com, Inc., 54 USPQ2d 1344
 
In this case, the court refuse to dismiss at summary judgment a claim that deep linking caused tortious loss of business to the plaintiff based on a trespass theory.  
 
Not definitive, but the best I could come up with.

A later and somewhat more definitive result in Ticketmaster Corp. v. Tickets.com, Inc  2003 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 6483
 
http://eric_goldman.****/caselaw/ticketmastermarch72003.htm
 
In this case there is a defendant's motion for summary judgement, and the portion of the case where summary judgement is denied on the contract issue is of interest.

Sorry to jump in, but what's "deep" linking (as opposed to any other kind of linking)?

Deep linking is linking directly to a page other than an intended entry point of a web site.
