Congressman to introduce anti-trust safe harbor bill for newspaper companies
Bill would allow newspapers to collectively negotiate with Facebook, Google on content monetization
On Monday, Feb. 26, the News Media Alliance again called on Congress to allow publishers to negotiate collectively with dominant online platforms, namely Facebook and Google.
In an Op-Ed published in The Wall Street Journal, Alliance President & CEO David Chavern announced that Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI), the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee, is expected to introduce a bill soon that would amend anti-trust laws to incorporate a safe harbor, allowing news publishers to negotiate with the big tech platforms, and therefore flowing needed ad dollars back to the deserving parties, the news publishers.
