I am looking for some software which will monitor news sites, etc for relevant search terms and bring me back links to relevant press clippings and news articles.

Does anyone have software for purchase?

No commercial solution available, but what I do is a Yahoo news search. They carry the url wire, ap, reuters, and many third party news stories. The search function is pretty good.

News monitor scripts are very difficult to keep updated because they have to flow with the sites you monitor. I run 12 and they take about an hour a week reprogramming. That's too often for commercial software.
