The Associated Press got even stupider.

Tom Curley, The A.P.’s president and chief executive, said the company’s position was that even minimal use of a news article online required a licensing agreement with the news organization that produced it.

That’s from the New York Times.

I swear, the AP is starting to get to the level of the NCAA.
