Think you can just quote news for free? It’s only half true only. Associated Press allows you special package of 4 words free, with 5 words just costing a ultra-reasonable $12.50. More below:

  • 5-25 words: $12.50
  • 26-50 words: $17.50
  • 51-100 words: $25.00
  • 101-250 words: $50.00
  • 251 words and up: $100.00

I understand Associated Press is merely trying to protect it’s placing in news spreading but this mentality has to change. AP went after the Drudge Retort for quoting less than 100 words.
