AI peering over paywalls
Many publishers now believe AI tools are bypassing paywalls to access subscriber-only content*, which then shows up in answers generated by the likes of ChatGPT. Are they right, or paranoid? Answers are being demanded. (*With Glide Verify this can't happen.)

AI wins photo competition, again

"What time does this fad end?"
The journalistic equivalent of being put on traffic duty might be coming to an end. Google stops featuring content so thin it can do it itself.
