The following statement from the Software & Information Industry Association can be attributed to Paul Lekas, Senior Vice President, Global Public Policy.

“SIIA is disappointed that the Senate Judiciary Committee voted this morning to advance the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA).  Our First Amendment concerns with the bill remain. In addition, the bill could be read to prejudge a whole series of legal and policy issues around training data, generative AI and content creation.  SIIA continues to oppose floor consideration of the bill in its current form.”
