The suit filed against Google by Agence France Presse has enormous implications for everyone from the largest online media publisher to the most insignificant cyber-scribbler.
Those of us who wish AFP weren't so persnickety would like to argue that the "fair use" provision of the copyright law permits someone to publish quotes or extracts of copyrighted material for purposes of reporting or commenting on the news.
If AFP and the other producers of copyrighted content push the issue, all online publishers either will be forced to pay copyright fees or run the risk of being sued into oblivion. /2005/03/afp-case-perils-all-online-publishers.html   (923 words)

An AFP correspondent in Diwaniya, 180 kilometers south of Baghdad, said fighting flared overnight on Tuesday when coalition troops took control of Sadr's main office and confiscated a cache of arms.
Sadr, who is wanted over the alleged murder of a rival cleric last year, offered a ceasefire if US forces withdrew from their base outside Najaf, a spokesman said.

The White House also pressed Powell to include charges that the suspected leader of the September 11 hijackers, Mohammed Atta, had met in Prague with an Iraqi intelligence officer prior to the attacks, despite a refusal by US and European intelligence agencies to confirm the meeting, the magazine said.
Cheney's aides wanted Powell to include in his presentation information that Iraq has purchased computer software that would allow it to plan an attack on the United States, an allegation that was not supported by the CIA, US News reported.
The pressure forced Powell to appoint his own review team that met several times with Central Intelligence Agency Director George Tenet and national security adviser Condoleezza Rice to prepare the speech, in which the secretary of state accused Iraq of hiding tonnes of biological and chemical weapons. /docs_03/060403B.shtml   (341 words)
