Clipping service Meltwater, which has faced legal trouble for scraping content, says it will drop a court appeal and work with news agencies instead to develop new products. The news, announced on Monday, comes after Meltwater suffered a resounding loss this spring in a case involving the Associated Press and the New York Times. The judge rejected Meltwater’s argument that taking the headline and the “lede” of a news story was fair use and called it copyright infringement instead.
