Newsroom Magazine is publishing news content today. Sharing what’s happening in Washington with readers world-wide is our purpose and our mission. We respect Internet content publishers who have chosen to bail-out, boycott, or go dark in protest over the K-Street Industrial Complex’ ham-handed attempt at copyright protection absent equally clear protection for freedom of speech rights.
Newsroom Magazine calls on Congress to kill both the SOPA and PIPA bills.
The Internet is a complex and often difficult to understand medium. Few who use this medium grasp how important the Internet has become to economic growth. Or how Internet-enabled freedom of speech has changed the world.
Newsroom Magazine supports legislation that equally values the needs and interests of all Internet content stakeholders.
Property rights are important. But no more so than freedom of speech and expression. As long as both are protected the Internet can continue to empower the disenfranchised, even as it affords others the opportunity to profit, share, inform, teach, entertain, lie, cheat, or misdirect.
Today, the Internet is at risk by way of SOPA and/or PIPA bills pending in the U.S. Congress. The purpose of the proposed legislation is to end wrongful exploitation of copyrighted materials by persons or organizations, especially those offshore, who seek to wrongfully profit from the intellectual property of others.
Intellectual property rights are of importance to both Internet users and publishers for the right to profit from one’s own work is central to freedom of information.
The pending legislation should be scrapped in favor of joint development of a new bill based on hearings and consultations by and among content copyright owners and Internet operators, publishers and content providers.
