Well, I hope we’ll know more about the standdown in the AP Affair, but I’m glad and not a bit surprised that hostilities have ceased. Fair use and fair comment remain murky, as they were intended. The larger story about the changing architecture, economy, and society of news media also remains.
I’m recording a BBC Radio 4 appearance later today on the topic. The AP chose not to join. Too bad. I think the more openly this discussion is held, the better. It’s complex and not clear cut from any vantage.
