Licensing online quotations – link roundup

leave a comment

by Nancy Sims, MTTLR Blog editor

In early June, news site the Drudge Retort received DMCA takedown notices from the Associated Press, for several pieces containing 39- to 79-word quotations from AP articles . Although the AP quickly backed off on their DMCA threat, they had previously published a pricing structure (screenshot from June 19, above) for blog quotations of their articles, with costs of $12.50 for as little as 5 words. Bloggers are crying “foul”, claiming fair use and “hot news” privileges.

MTTLRblog will update this post as the conversation continues. We welcome your comments and link suggestions.
