Associated Press gets heavy handed - bloggers retaliate
The blogosphere bites back. The Associated Press took offense when some poor blogger quoted a few words of an AP story in his blog and asked for some money over unfair use of article excerpts and charged $2.50 per word. Michelle Malkin, who only gets 244,000 visits a day to her blog, has noticed that the AP has nicked some of her work without paying for it. She is apparently owed $132,125 on the AP pay scale. Ka ching-ching-ching.
