Ariana Huffington & AP CEO Talk Shop on Charlie Rose

FishbowlNY: Charlie Rose had a great segment last night, welcoming both AP CEO Tom Curley and Arianna Huffington as guests to dicuss, among other things, paid vs. free content. As most of you are probably aware, the AP announced its intention to crack down on aggregators who are using their content without paying for it.

Says Curley: “We believe is people are trying to build businesses on our back, on our good work, and on the works of our journalists who are in some cases risking their lives to get that news. So they are building their businesses and they are not compensating us, and that’s what we want to stop.”

HuffPo, as we discovered the other day, does have a licensing deal with the AP, which Arianna points out in this segment. She also notes that the “question is, do we recognize, as Jeff Jarvis puts it, that we are living in the link economy, where links are actually incredibly valuable. They drive traffic to content providers.”
