Publishers rip computer transaction law

Published on .

The Newspaper Association of America and the Magazine Publishers of America today ripped a proposed model state law aimed at computer information transactions, warning that the model would have the effect of creating two entirely different rules for usage of editorial content, depending on whether the content is print or online. The associations also warned the model law could create problems in software licensing. The Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act was adopted recently by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Law. The NAA and MPA said they would fight adoption of the model at the state level.
