Google’s “sort of temporary detente” with the Associated Press is progressing: now new AP stories have started showing up on Google (NSDQ: GOOG) News — this one, for example, about AP itself — as first noticed by WSJ. It comes after a nearly seven week gap and continued negotiations on the licensing terms.

Google has the same statement it had last week: that is has a licensing agreement with AP, and discussions to modify/extend it are ongoing. AP says they have nothing to add to that statement. This follows AP’s new agreement with Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO) News, as we reported last week.
