I think this is really a step in the wrong direciton. Here's something I stumbled across if anyone wants to join the bloggers side http://tiny.cc/F0i6S

I love the fact that bloggers are driving traffic to AP's corporate clients and AP is rewarding them with legal threats.

Hi Drew, great post - this is very interesting. The newspapers and news services are all scratching their collective heads at the moment trying to figure out how they can keep both readers and revenue and nobody seems to be able to come up with a definitive answer yet. However, I think I speak for most bloggers when I say this is not the answer. The common phrase 'cutting your nose off to spite your face' springs to mind.

I'm just dying to know the financial implications (i.e. waste of money) of the AP's efforts to track everyone down and threathen each and every one of those mean bloggers who ultimately generate traffic for the AP's website.

Great post, thanks, this story will fit my degree paper like a glove. :)
