The News Media Alliance applauds Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) for the release of the discussion draft of his proposed Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) reform bill, which includes proposals that would help news publishers to be able to protect their online content and facilitate receiving payment from the tech platforms for use of their content.
