NAA: Copyright Protection Vital for Papers

By: NetNewsCheck

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.”
