Google renews news content licensing deal with AP Google has renewed its news content licensing deal with the AP this week, following months of negotiations.
The deal will allow Google to post full-text articles from the AP on Google News.

"We look forward to future collaborations, including on ways Google and AP can work together to create a better user experience and new revenue opportunities," says Josh Cohen, a Google senior business product manager.

Says the AP: "Under the agreement, AP and Google will also work together in a number of new areas, such as ways to improve discovery and distribution of news."

There was no word on the financials of the deal.

In January, after a negotiation dispute, Google stopped publishing AP stories. They began running them again in February.
