California measure would force tech giants to pay news outlets

Tech industry group NetChoice on Tuesday launched a new litigation hub aimed at coordinating lawsuits and amicus briefs for the tech industry, our colleague Cat Zakrzewski reports.

The center will provide programming on tech industry regulatory issues and “collect legal analysis with tech-friendly positions,” the report says.

The litigation hub is meant to help tech companies establish legal footing as judges increasingly begin to make more decisions related to hot topics in tech policy, including competition and social media safety.

“Online free speech and online free enterprise are under attack … from every corner of this country,” said Chris Marchese, NetChoice counsel serving as the center’s new director in an interview with Cat. “Industry has to have a consistent voice.”
