ReCreate Statement Following JCPA Markup

Re:Create issued the following statement after the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JPCA), S. 673, moved out of the Senate Judiciary Committee: 

“The markup process demonstrated how the JCPA will enrich Big Media corporations and suppress local journalism. By mandating that platforms carry and pay for massive media publishers’ content and creating a copyright loophole that will obstruct consumers’ basic access to information online, the JCPA brazenly violates First Amendment protections to free speech and free press,” said Re:Create Executive Director Joshua Lamel. “We are extremely disappointed to see that the JCPA’s significant and grave problems remain unchanged. We urge the full Senate to reject the deeply flawed and unconstitutional JCPA.”
