Interesting, from Wikipedia...
Halley is generally pronounced /ˈhæli/, rhyming with valley, or /ˈheɪli/ rhyming with daily, but Edmond Halley himself probably pronounced his name /ˈhɔːli/ Hawley, as in the word "hall".

Maybe the aggregators should charge AP to be included in their services since AP benefits from it.
There used to be such a thing as fair use. It seems that some corporations won't be happy until all fair use laws are destroyed. The next thing to be made illegal are libraries for allowing people to read content they haven't paid for.
It is hard for me to see how Google is a parasite (pardon the grammar, I'm a Yank). All they do is provide links to the original news source. If they have ads and can make money for providing that service, great. Let the newspapers make money providing the news itself. If it can't be done with ads, then some other means should be thought of without blaming Google who only sends more traffic their way.
Oh, I prefer to read my newspaper on my Kindle. It has the portability advantages without the inky mess.
