Intellectual Property

Magazine media publishers create content for print, online and mobile platforms. As publishers develop new ways to connect and enhance their reader’s brand experience through a broader array of distribution platforms, protection of intellectual property is of ever-increasing importance. Magazine publishers are both creators and users of copyrighted works. MPA supports the copyright “fair use” doctrine, advocating to protect the ownership rights of publishers as content creators, while defending their ability to make lawful use of copyrighted works.
