Marketing & Tech @ 30 August 2010

Google has recently announced that their little spat with Associated Press is now over.  The problems started at the begining of the year when the licensing agreement that allowed Google to display news content created by Associated Press expired.  There has long been contention between the two companies as to the future of ownership of content on the web.  Now, at least for the meanwhile a compromise has been reached.  So look forward again to more AP content appearing on google searches.

Google has stated on their blog today, “We’ve extended our existing licensing agreement with the Associated Press that permits us to host its content on Google properties such as Google News. We look forward to future collaborations, including on ways Google and AP can work together to create a better user experience and new revenue opportunities.”
