The Newspaper Association of America, represented by general counsel Kurt Wimmer, Tuesday testified before the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on the Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet during a hearing on copyright law and “The Scope of Fair Use.” The hearing was part of a months-long review of the Copyright Act.

“Newspapers invest in the journalism that is essential to a well-informed citizenry and a free and democratic society,” the NAA said in a statement. “Newspaper content is protected by copyright law and is more popular than ever in the digital age, as 65% of American adults read newspaper content in a typical week or access newspaper content on a mobile device in a typical month.”
