Google kicks AP out of the house

Contract negotiations between Google and the Associated Press broke down a few weeks ago and, as a result, Google is no longer adding new AP content to its search results.

From the Business Journal:
The action apparently came before Christmas but wasn't noticed until Monday.

"We have a licensing agreement with the Associated Press that permits us to host its content on Google properties such as Google News. Some of that content is still available today," a Google spokesman said in an e-mail statement to CNNMoney. "At the moment we're not adding new hosted content from the AP."

Yeah, because fire-walling AP will save your industry.
