Members of the blogosphere won’t want to miss out on today’s Blog World Expo Radio show. Hosts Jim Turner and Rick Calvert will be chatting with the president of the Media Blogger’s Association, Robert Cox.

Why is this a big deal?

Unless you’ve been hiding in a cave or off Twitter for a while, there’s a big ‘ol storm brewing because of a funny little blog called The Drudge Retort which poked a bit of fun at the real deal Drudge Report. Not everyone has a sense of humor and the Associated Press went DMCA on The Drudge Retort’s butt. Backlash ensued.

Read Rick Calvert’s explanation at the BWE blog:

Very short version of the story, The AP sent several DMCA take down notices to The Drudge Retort. Some of those notices went beyond normal fair use standards. Rogers Cadenhead the publisher of The Drudge Retort complied with several of the notices and called the Media Bloggers Association for help.

Then all hell broke loose. The Blogosphere is railing against the AP. Jeff Jarvis has been very vocal. Sites like TechCrunch and Little Green Footballs are banning all AP content.

Mike Arrington and numerous others suspect a conspiracy between The AP, The NYT and The MBA.

Others are calling the MBA a flat out scam and even attacking the man at the center of this bruhaha Cadenhead.

Now some are coming to the MBA and Cox’ defense.

What is the real story? I don’t know and the truth is most folks in the Blogosphere don’t either but that doesn’t stop many from forming opinions and lynching parties.

To get the whole story and to find out how this will effect you as a blogger, tune in today at 3:00 p.m. EST to BWE Radio. You can call in at 646-716-7047 or add your views to the chat.

See you there.
