The rapidly growing commercial interest in Linked Data raises the prospect of \"Linked Data spam\", which the authors define as \"Deliberately misleading information (data and links) published as Linked Data, with the goal of creating financial gain for the publisher\". Compared to conventional technologies affected by spamming, e.g. email and blogs, spammers targeting Linked Data may not be able to push information directly towards consumers, but rather may seek to exploit a lack of human involvement in automated data integration processes performed by applications consuming Linked Data.
