eldavojohn writes “Techdirt directed my attention to an article where the AP discussed pressure from new devices and mediums today giving them cause to create a clearinghouse for news — much like the music industry’s ASCAP — to ‘establish an enforcement and payment system.’ You’ll notice that the story I am linking to and quoting is an AP story … would Slashdot then be required to pay these fees? We have seen DMCA take down notices and fee discussions before from the AP.”
