AP plans ‘registry’ to track, license online news content

The US news agency the Associated Press, in a move aimed at protecting its content online, announced on Thursday it was building a “news registry” that would track the use of its stories on the Web.

The New York-based AP, a cooperative owned by more than 1,400 US newspapers, said that the news registry will “tag and track all AP content online to assure compliance with terms of use.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, so we all have to stop linking to (and driving traffic to) AP stories.
