The Associated Press Hates Blogs

The AP wants bloggers to pay licensing fees to quote from their stories.

Unfortunately, a nifty clause in the United States Code provides for something called “fair use,” allowing for the use of copyrighted material without the copyright holder’s permission in certain cases, like for educational purposes or commentary/criticism. Watch out, AP, you’ve gone and got the whole internet mad at you!
