Google, AP disclose news payment deal

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 5:39 am

Google Inc. is paying The Associated Press for stories and photographs, settling a dispute with a major provider of the copyright news that the online search engine finds and displays on its popular Web site.

Both Mountain View-based Google and New York-based AP disclosed the business relationship Wednesday. But neither would divulge financial terms or other details because of a nondisclosure agreement.

Google indicated AP’s content will serve as the foundation for a new product that will be introduced in the coming months as complement to its popular Google News service.
