AP settles copyright suit with PR firm after winning fair use ruling

8 10 2013

A copyright dispute between the Associated Press and an online news-clipping service, Meltwater News, has ended with a settlement. The parties have agreed to partner up and deliver news products.

“There is more to be gained by working together to develop new markets and reaching new customers than can be achieved through adversarial paths,” said Meltwater CEO Jorn Lyseggen. “We are eager to forge a strong relationship with AP.”

While the talk is conciliatory, it looks like Meltwater lost this lawsuit.
