Upon clicking this link, I received the following error message. What could be the reason for this and how do I resolve this issue?

The accepted answer isn't actually a solution.

I ran into this problem recently, and I made a simple Chrome Extension that fixes the problem, at least for Google Calendar. It uses the webRequest API to shorten the URL automatically after you click the link.

You can download it on the Chrome Web Store.

doesn't look like they were looking for a solution, but rather answer for why this was happening. As such, you've posted a good workaround and it's a valid one. –  Dez Oct 21 '12 at 19:36
Upvoted for the solution. As @Dez said, I was actually more interested in the reason. –  Lelouch Lamperouge Oct 9 '13 at 19:53
