AP Fair Use & Blogging Link Policy

Tuesday, June 17, 2008 | 02:00 PM

Someone beat me to it:

"Here's our new policy on A.P. stories: they don't exist. We don't see them, we don't quote them, we don't link to them. They're banned until they abandon this new strategy, and I encourage others to do the same until they back down from these ridiculous attempts to stop the spread of information around the Internet."

-Michael Arrington, Tech Crunch

Done . . .

I think we should do the opposite. Flood them with links. Bury them.

Ten posts a day each with a link. Could all be to the same story. Doesn't matter.

Show them how useless it is. How many take down notices a day can they send out? What if we challenge every notice as fair use?

Of course, that's just me.
