Hockey Bloggers Beware

From the Associated Press, a new profit scheme for anyone who wishes to cite excerpts from their articles:

You’ve got to be kidding.  Can’t Stop the Bleeding notes, “Time will tell if other wire services follow suit, but despite the challenges this will present to CSTB, I’m confident the sports blogosphere’s leading lights will soldier on.”

Indeed they will. And they will be happy to do so without citing or linking to AP materials posted at any website on the internet—and sites who pay for AP feeds on their website will lose part of the traffic that drives their advertising dollars.

Great plan, AP.

About Canucks and Beyond

Alanah McGinley has been blogging hockey since 2003 (with a notable gap in time through 2010, kicking it with new baby Lucy while living knee-deep in chaos while reading "parenting for complete idiots" during every spare minute) sharing opinions, rants and not-so-deep thoughts with anyone who will listen.

In addition to writing Canucks & Beyond and helping manage Kukla's Korner, Alanah was one of the founders and co-hosts of The Crazy Canucks Podcast. She has contributed pieces to FoxSports.com and the New York Times Slapshot blog, as well as other stray destinations in cyberspace.

So that's me. Who the hell are you? smile
