AP sues website it claims ripped off its stories

The Associated Press (AP), yesterday in New York, began legal action against All Headline News (AHN), a website it claimed was infringing its copyright by rewriting and publishing its copy.

The AP claims AHN Media copied its stories from news sites then resold to other news outlets, according to a report by the Canadian Press.

The lawsuit stated that AP ended its republishing deal with AHN in 2005, reportedly because AHN repeatedly used more content than two paragraphs of news stories it was permitted, the report added.
