Asshitiated Press gets ready to go one a rampage

Arts Technica reports that Asshitiated Press (yes, I do know how to properly spell their name – it’s just that I think my spelling is more appropriate) intends to go on a rampage, attacking the billions of web sites that are using “Their Content” in manners that are not consonant with Fair Use.

This has been going on for over a year now, and management at the Asshitiated Press appears to be technical and legal morons. Hell, calling them morons is insulting to morons.

And then we hear all about the plans to make many of the main news sites pay.

The news industry seems intent on destroying themselves in a spectacular and stupid manner. Here’s to seeing management walking the picket lines for the next millenia, while the reporters get hired immediately.
