could someone explain this to me, please

i was here --> http://bailiwick.lib.uiowa.edu/swiss/radio2/reach.html

reading articles on Internet Radio/broadcasting, the text appears as below

More than 60 years later,
Broadcast.com
<http://broadcast.com/> (this is a hyperlink)
a company that
claims to deliver "more live
and on-demand broadcasts
with more viewers
and
listeners than any other company
in the world,"

my question/problem is.... when i click on the link, (or copy and paste)it takes me to Yahoo.com (which BTW, is my homepage)....

It took me also to Yahoo....but

if I change it to .net instead of .com it takes me to the site I believe it should have been linked to. Wonder if the .com domain name was up for grabs and yahoo grabbed it up.....and using a redirect?
