    Not quite a valid comparison

    While I generally agree with the get-over-yourself-AP sentiment, in this case you're comparing the reaction to what's essentially a nonmonetized side business for Google with the core of the AP's operation (selling content). Google's in the ad biz, not the content biz, so it views the world (pardon the pun) differently and is far less likely to perceive use of its content, regardless of its transformative nature, as "theft".
