PaidContent: AP Chairman interviewed – “We own the content”

Let’s brave it and link (it’s a press release so it should be ok): AP chairman Dean Singleton’s speech in which he said:

“We can no longer stand by and watch others walk off with our work under misguided legal theories. We are mad as hell, and we are not going to take it any more.”

And this, in an interview with PaidContent:

“Singleton didn’t pull any punches during our phone interview – repeating in various ways, “We own the content. We can use it as we see fit because it’s ours.”

“But he didn’t provide much detail, either. What he did say: print isn’t going away, advertising can’t carry the weight anymore, and online pay models may be on the way.”
