Copyright

The Alliance advocates for its members’ ability to effectively protect their content and enforce their rights through copyright laws and licensing enforcement. Publishers are both creators and users of copyrighted works, who regularly interpret and rely on fair use principles to disseminate high quality journalism needed for an informed public. Copyright laws protect the ability of publishers to benefit from their significant investments in new, creative content, while also defending their ability to make lawful use of copyrighted works.
