News Media Alliance Applauds EU's Historic Move toward Global Copyright Protection for News Publishers
The European Union earlier this month reached a
on the proposed Copyright Directive in the Digital Single Market. The Directive creates a Publishers' Right that provides news publishers the right to protect their content against unauthorized commercial uses online. "We applaud the global leadership of European lawmakers, who recognized the value of creating content, in our case, news and information that underpins an informed democracy and a civic society," stated News Media Alliance President & CEO David Chavern. "News publishers' ability to sustain high-quality journalism relies on an incentive to invest in newsrooms that support critical coverage, particularly in local communities."
