Court Finds No Fair Use by Meltwater in News Aggregator Case
by George H. Pike
The Associated Press (AP) won a major victory against online news aggregator Meltwater when a Federal District Court in New York declared that Meltwater's "scraping" of AP news articles from the internet infringed on AP's copyrights. The court rejected Meltwater's assertion that its activities were like that of a search engine and were protected by copyright's Fair Use defense. The case has attracted wide interest from news organizations seeking to protect their works even as they may be available for free on the internet, as well as from internet activists and entrepreneurs who have expressed concern that the decision could inhibit the sharing of public information.

The Latest Pew Report on The State of the News Media
by Paula J. Hane
Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism published "The State of the News Media 2013," a study that concluded the U.S. has a "news industry that is more undermanned and unprepared to uncover stories, dig deep into emerging ones, or to question information put into its hands." Overall, "Online was the only category of news that showed growth." I'd say that's a fairly dreary and pessimistic outlook, as did many of the media outlets reporting the results of the study. Thankfully, there were actually some bright spots in the report that highlighted some of the evolutionary changes occurring. But, Matthew Yglesias, writing in Slate, says, "Ignore the doomsayers: The news-reading public has never had more and better information at their fingertips."
