The Associated Press: AP, News Corp bosses tell search engines to pay up: "By ALEXA OLESEN (AP) – 7 hours ago
BEIJING — The leaders of two of the world's major news organizations said Friday that it is time for search engines and others who use news content for free to pay up.
The comments from Tom Curley of The Associated Press and News Corp.'s Rupert Murdoch come as the media industry struggles in the Internet age. Many news companies contend that sites such as Google have reaped a fortune from their articles, photos and video without fairly compensating the news organizations producing the material."
And yet note that this story I have reaped a fortune from reproducing comes from...the Associated Press. Ah, the irony.
