They don’t exist. We don’t see them, we don’t quote them, we don’t link to them. They’re banned until they abandon this new strategy, and I encourage others to do the same until they back down from these ridiculous attempts to stop the spread of information around the Internet.Will an AP boycott work? Is the AP right to execute such a strict rule among bloggers? Regardless of one's interpretation of the "fair use" parameters, the damage has been done. Bloggers have been regarded as a community out to slander or disvalue others content, insinuating that the news produced by bloggers is not actually news at all, only a recapitulation who has overstepped its boundaries. Yet, does the AP know what it has stepped into? A large percentage of users read blogs online and a recent survey found that "eight in 10 business journalists used, or plan to use, blogs as primary or secondary article sources". Time will tell if the AP has sealed their fate or if blogs will rise up like a phoenix and crush the AP like a bug.
