NewsNow is an aggregator that has been operating since 1998, observing many changes in the digital media world around it.

Last month, the NewsNow team started a petition gathering publishers' signatures to ask Members of the European Parliament to rethink the proposed changes to copyright law and consider the interests of smaller media organisations.

But those who support the changes, which would give publishers neighbouring rights, believe the proposal will help protect publishers' interests and would benefit staff and freelancers alike.

In this podcast, speaks to Struan Bartlett, founder and chief executive of NewsNow, to find out his concerns, as well as look at the argument in favour of the proposed changes.

Let us know your take on the proposed changes by tweeting at @journalismnews, and keep an eye on the website for more updates over the coming weeks as we dive deeper into the matter.
