    The Associated Press is making an epic mistake here. If they don’t want their articles appearing on Google then they’re doing a good job, but you’re right — that’s suicide. Given the challenging nature of the newspaper business it amazes me they are still ‘fighting’ the internet. Even though Google is the world’s biggest scraper site, thems the breaks. I wonder how many readers get their AP stories online versus in print these days. I’d guess it’s getting close to 50/50. Who in their right mind would want to kill half of their reading audience?
