AP's New Excerpt for Web Use Fee Schedule

A meeting between the AP's Vice President for Strategic Planning Jim Kennedy and Robert Cox, who heads the Media Bloggers Association, is planned for Thursday. The subject at hand is the AP's attempt to find a new way of sharing AP content, which now involves a fee per excerpt based on its word length. BetaNews reporter Tim Conneally has the details: AP sets up a toll booth for bloggers citing its stories.

The AP's quotation fee system is powered by iCopyright. As noted in our earlier post, iCopyright's Terms of Use Agreement stipulates that the license purchaser not criticize either the publisher or the author of the article being quoted! [JH]
