The A.P. Steps Up

This is something that’s been looming for a while, and it looks like it’s finally happening.  As reported in the Times, the Associated Press is beginning a crack down of the use of its articles by news aggragators such as Yahoo, Google, and the Huffington Post.  From the tone of the article this sounds like the calmest copyright kerfluffle to date.  Although not all of the A.P.’s members are in agreement with this course of action (some like getting the added traffic a link from Google can send their way).

This is definitely a story worth watching.
