AP Says "Share Your Revenue, Or Face Lawsuits"


news.slashdot.org

"The Associated Press is starting to feel the bite of the economic recession and said on Monday that they will 'work with portals and other partners who legally license our content and will seek legal and legislative remedies against those who don't.' They are talking about everything from search engines to aggregators that link to news articles and some sites that reproduce the whole news article. The article notes that in Europe legislative action has blocked Google from using news articles from some outlets similar to what was discussed here last week."

What ramifications could this have for ATS?
As well as the blogosphere?

This seems, to me at least, like something that could strongly shake the foundation of the internet as we know it today. I wonder what the "legislative remedies" ential...

Would this apply to someone who just quotes the website?
