We Can't Quote The AP… But Can Embed Its Videos?
from the left-hand,-meet-the-right-hand dept
The Associated Press is still insisting that bloggers shouldn’t be excerpting its articles online without a license — but apparently no one told the folks pushing AP videos. Jon Ashley wonders about this difference, noting that the AP has its own YouTube Channel, where it appears that the videos all have embedding enabled. This, of course, takes us right back to the question we asked last week concerning whether or not embedding videos can be seen as infringement. In the meantime, since the AP insists it really wants to be a part of the “conversation,” can it explain why embedding videos is great, while quoting is not?
