Um, no, Rust.

It's your car. Once you put it on a public road, can you do anything you 
want with it?

It's your building. Once you open your restaurant for business (or rent 
your rooms to tenants), can you do anything you want with it? In fact, 
even if it sits vacant, can you do *anything* you want with it? (Better 
check zoning laws, fire codes, building codes, etc.)

You post your page, you are now in the public sphere. And the public has 
a right to regulate what you can and cannot do in the public sphere. 
That includes telling you what you can do with your web page, and how 
you can do it.
