Shutting the barn door after the horse got out

AP to Internet: Go away, we don't want you to link to our content.

Internet to AP: Uhm, you're 15 years too late, dude!

-- Badtux the Snarky Penguin


  1. Badtux, that's the absolute best laugh I've had all day!

  2. Yea , WTF ? With the way the printed medium is going south (and I don't mean to Mexico) you would think that AP might appreciate anyone that will use their services ? Oh well so much for reality .

  3. The AP has always seemed a bit psychotic when it comes to enforcing their copyrights, but now they want LESS traffic coming their way? Sure, that'll drive up ad revenue.

    They can print news in a cave for all we care, there are a lot of other ways to get the news.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
