Google and Associated Press have finally renewed their vows. Google will continue to host AP stories on Google News and have access to AP's news feeds without fear that the AP will make legal claims against the company. "We've extended our existing licensing agreement with the AP that permits us to host its content on Google properties such as 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," announced Google.
