Last week, Our-Hometown President & CEO Matthew Larson was joined by Cecil Wehrman, publisher of The Crosby Journal and The Tioga Tribune of JournalTrib.com, for a special Publisher Interview where they discussed Australia’s recently-passed legislation requiring Google and Facebook to compensate publishers for using their news.
Cecile had previously published some commentary on the legislation, suggesting it is a situation that publishers in the U.S. should be keeping an eye on. You can read her piece, “Australian case could set the stage” on JournalTrib.com.

Big thanks to Cecile for taking some time out of her busy week to help educate and share her thoughts on the situation.
