J-Source Newsletter - National Press Council to launch in September; Quebec newspapers boycott concerts over stringent photography contracts

TORONTO, July 17, 2015 /CNW/ -

National Press Council set to launch in September
After two years of discussion and planning, three of Canada's five press councils—B.C., Ontario and Atlantic—will amalgamate into a national organization that will oversee the public arbitration process each council had presided over locally for decades. Chantal Braganza reports.

Quebec newspapers boycott concerts over stringent photography contracts
Restrictive photography contracts for entertainment events aren't new, but in recent years, they've veered into the extreme. When Taylor Swift and the Foo Fighters started asking for moral rights to images—and more—during shows in Montreal and Quebec City, photo desks started pushing back.

"People like math when it's represented in a really elegant way." J-Source speaks with The 10 and 3 co-founder Arik Motksin about what happens when a statistician and a data analyst launch a news site dedicated entirely to telling stories through data.

"The Canadian broadcasting system is an act of political will"
The Canadian Media Guild recaps a C.D. Howe Institute panel on the future of public broadcasting, featuring Andrew Coyne of the National Post, former CBC executive news producer Tony Burman and regulatory affairs lawyer Peter Miller.
