Blogger warning

This is a heads up to bloggers of all shapes, sizes and political allegiances (even nasty ones) that use stories from Associated Press.  Looks like using AP's content might land you at the wrong end of a legal suit.  In just one example, Roger Cadenhead of the Drudge Retort reports that AP is suing a blogger for posts  quoting between 33 and 74 words of AP's material!  More details from the blogger here. [Hat tip Noodle Food.]

Just thought you ought to know too.
