AP Reconsiders Blog Policy

An article in Editor and Publisher reports that the Associated Press says it will "define clear standards as to how much of its articles and broadcasts bloggers and Web sites can excerpt without infringing on The A.P.’s copyright."

The news organization had come under criticism for trying to make one Web site remove several items that referenced quotes from AP articles. Government communicators should pay attention to the new policy when it is released to get a clear understanding of how A.P. articles can be referenced in blogs.
