This memo was sent to Baton Rouge Advocate staffers on Monday afternoon:
From: Ballance, John
Sent: Monday, October 22, 2012 4:01 PM
To: News – All Departments
Subject: It’s on
I got a call from the AP today telling me that the Times Picayune is outing The Advocate. This means we cannot use any Times Picayune photos in our print or online editions.
We will now add to our outs The Times Picayune preventing them from using our photos in their 3 day a week print publication or any other of their publications.
Photo Dept. Manager
UPDATE: I was sent this second Advocate memo:
At this point we have decided not to out the Times Picayune but, we will have a mandatory credit.
So for now Please add to the after the outs in the caption field
