I owe the Associated Press a huge apology. With all the hype over AP allegedly going after the Drudge Retort
with a law suit, the whole matter was a very large misunderstanding. In an email from a fellow blogger I received a link to Media Bloggers Association that has all of the facts behind the AP issue with Drudge Retort. You can read it here.
MBA is a group of volunteers that mediate on behalf of bloggers. They are a bloggers best friend when it comes to freedom of speech on the internet.
After reading all of the facts I have to say that I agree with the AP. Drudge Retort was posting entire articles including the headlines from the Associated Press and that is copyright infringement.
Wrapping this story up with a huge apology to the Associated Press.
****My friend over at the Gun Toting Liberal has linked to this post with his own thoughts on this issue...
