[News] Newspapers Cartel Attacks Freedom of Information -- Again

Hash: SHA1

AP Preparing New Copyright Management System

,----[ Quote ]
| The new system will register key identifying information about each piece of 
| content that AP distributes as well as the terms of use of that content into 
| a storage database. It also will employ a built-in "beacon" to notify AP and 
| other publishers about how the content is used.   


DRM for news? Inside the AP's plan to "wrap" its content

| to "wrap" and "protect" its content though a "digital permissions framework. 
| But there's (way) less here than meets the eye.   


Permission Culture: Want To Quote A Single Sentence In A Book? Pay Up!

,----[ Quote ]
| Yes, it's become so impossible to quote a single short sentence, that it's 
| just not worth doing at all. Welcome to permission society. Some copyright 
| system believers may claim that this is just the market at work, but it

| at the hands of copyright law.    


Did European Court Just Make Search Engines Illegal? 11-Word Snippet Can Be
Copyright Infringement

,----[ Quote ]
| With the AP being out there claiming that fair use only covers snippets fewer 
| than five words, there are some questions about where the boundaries 
| for "fair use" of "snippets" lies. Unfortunately, a new ruling in Europe 
| seems to be pretty extreme (in a bad way). The ruling found that a snippet as 
| short as eleven words could be copyright infringement.
