Thomson Reuters and other news agencies have begun working with third-party content identification firms such as Attributor to track the flow of their material across blogs, websites and aggregators. [FT] Any time you talk about a tracking system, the thrust of [the commentary] is about enforcing copyright. But what we hope is the outcome out of this is the ability to enable more licensed uses of  content. We want to keep the content open, we don’t want to keep it behind firewalls.

Jim Kennedy, the AP’s VP of strategic planning: All Things D

What we are building here is a way for good journalism to survive and thrive. The AP news registry will allow our industry to protect its content online, and will assure that we can continue to provide original, independent and authoritative journalism at a time when the world needs it more than ever.
