Kevin: Newspaper co-operative, the Associated Press, is relying on a 1918 ruling to root out 'misappropriation' of its content. Julian Sanchez of Ars Technica does a great job of going through the relevant case law, the 1918 US Supreme Court decision International News Service v. Associated Press. Just as we had with music and sharing sites, grey areas of the law will become less grey over the next few years as cases make their way through court.
Kevin: It's clear. The newspaper industry is steeling itself for a fight, for some newspapers it might be a last stand. Dean Singleton, AP's chairman and vice chairman of MediaNews, and AP SVP Sue Cross are talking about content pirates. Tim Windsor hopes that all of this talk doesn't lead to New Century Network 2.0.
