No AP articles?
 
Why are mods deleting my threads and saying its because Hayden doesn't want any AP articles on the forums? Thats more than a little weird, considering AP is one of the main sources for news in the world.

NO permission from AP, their greedy turds like History Channel:mad:

You don't need permission to post AP articles. Almost every news story out there is an AP article.

I read that in a thread a while ago, I believe Hayden wrote it, but won't swear to it.

We need to find out who told Hayden that. AP articles on the internet are free game. They have no right to tell anyone they cant copy and paste or link to them.

They have every right, legally. The own the content. They even tried to stop us linking to yahoo bought AP stuff with the headlines (something Yahoo encourages people to do).

As for who told me. Lawyers that earn more in a day than I probably do in a month. Although I do believe linking to them is okay providing you don't quote them in any kind of way.

The law is a tricky business mate, especially when other people can afford more law than you can.

There are thousands of internet forums that link and quote AP articles. Its almost impossible not to, since most news stories reference the AP. Every single blog I know of, quotes and links to AP articles. I know at least a dozen other political forums where AP article are regularly posted and quoted. This is the first time I've ever heard anything like this.

It may be their content, but as soon as it goes up on the internet, its free game. Now, the content on their pay site is different, but I never get news from their pay site. I don't see how news can spread around the net if this is true, since most all news stories have AP referenced.

I don't know Hayden, seems fishy to me.

That's a very Socialist way to think about intellectual property rights.

No, Drone, they own it, you need permission to reprint or publish, go read up on it.

Ok, so now all the blogs and internet forums need to be shut down.


EDIT: managed to find some stories on this and from everything I read this is going to go nowhere. the AP has no case, unless the stories come from the pay end of their site. From everything I read, they're shooting themselves in the foot.
