For those that have been following the teacup-tempest, no formal guidelines were formed between the Associated Press and bloggers -- which will most likely continue excerpting bits of Associated Press subscription content at will.

Last week the AP and the Media Bloggers Association were supposed to meet to negotiate some kind of good-faith agreement on legitimately quoting paid content. No meeting occurred. Probably for the better: most bloggers were against it anyway, because the AP shouldn't be able to make content use restrictions that are more stringent than actual fair use law (see Wikipedia hash-out on that snaggly bad-boy).

AP says it continues to conduct "constructive [exchanges]" with members of the blogging community, but the MBA is just happy nobody had to go to court.
