Should the AP pay Woot $17.50 for a quote?

The founder of Woot, Matt Rutledge, may be a wealthier man following Amazon.com's acquisition of his company, but that isn't stopping him from sending a clear message to the Associated Press: you owe me $17.50. Why does the AP owe Rutledge? According to Rutledge, AP violated his copyright when they included a quote from Rutledge's email to Woot employees in their story about the acquisition.

The quote: "For Woot, our vision remains the same: somehow earning a living on snarky commentary and junk."

Equity for tech licenses? No thanks

An interesting fact about personal finance startup Mint.com, which recently sold to Intuit for $170m: the account aggregation technology that powers Mint.com is licensed from a company called Yodlee.

Yodlee, which was founded in 1999, has raised over $100m in funding. While it operates its own consumer-facing personal finance website, its core business is in licensing its technology to others. Its licensees include startups similar in nature to Mint.com as well as major financial institutions like Bank of America.

In an effort to desperately find a new source of revenue for its members, the Newspaper Licensing Agency (NLA) is making a bone-headed move: charging PR agencies for links to newspaper websites that they send to clients. 

It is nothing short of preposterous.
