The news that the Associated Press is going to rely increasingly on copyright and trademark law to staunch losses to its newsgathering business and its client/member newspapers does not bode well for the level of creative, entrepreneurial thinking needed in the Fourth Estate right now.

Robert Scoble has a nice post reflecting on the challenges facing the industry as currently structured and does a nice functional analysis of the assets news organizations still have to work with.
