Blogsphere: Mad as Hell at AP (Or, Is The AP The New RIAA?)

Publish date:

Whoa.  The Blogsphere is mad as hell at the Associated Press, and for good reason.   Taking a page from the Draconian RIAA,  AP threatened the Drudge Retort (a lefty answer to the Drudge Report) with legal action, damnding that the blog ???? seven items containing quotes, and links to, the AP

even items that contained quotations from A.P. articles ranging from 39 to 79 words.
