Search for a Google-AP pact succeeds - The Boston Globe

AP content assimilation

Google will publish entire stories from the AP in the news section of its website. That’s a departure from its usual practice of showing snippets from stories posted on thousands of other websites. Google maintains those excerpts qualify as “fair use’’ under copyright law, exempting it from licensing fees.

The Google deal is part of AP’s effort to bring in more revenue from the Web to help offset a drop in revenue from newspapers and broadcasters.
