NEW YORK (AP) - Google and The Associated Press have struck a new licensing deal that will allow Google to continue posting the news cooperative's content.
The AP said in a statement Monday that the two companies also will work together in ways to improve discovery and distribution of news.
The agreement comes after months of sometimes thorny
negotiations. At one point in the talks, Google Inc. stopped hosting AP content. Financial terms and the duration of the contract were not disclosed.
Google began to pay for AP's content in 2006 after the news agency threatened to sue. That contract expired in January but was extended while the talks continued.
