Boycotting the Associated Press

• Views: 5,192

Lots of fallout today from the Associated Press’s self-defeating decision to threaten legal action against web sites that link to and quote their articles. Techcrunch says they’re banning the AP: Here’s Our New Policy On A.P. stories: They’re Banned.

Not a bad idea, but kind of difficult to carry out, since the Associated Press is literally everywhere, and many news sites often use sections of AP articles combined with their own reporting.

But I’ll gladly join this movement; until the AP climbs down from this caveman approach, there will be no more links to AP stories in front page articles at LGF.
